The Wonders Of Seagull Cinematography

bill-swift - September 18, 2012

Filmmaking has always traditionally been done by humans, what with our opposable thumbs and cognitive ability. But now it seems that seagulls can be cinematographers. In the above video, some dumb chick leaves her GoPro camera recording on the beach. Why she would do that is besides the point. Maybe she was recording a hermit crab walking by or something? Then a seagull comes and steals the camera and shoots a pretty decent aerial shot of a San Francisco sunset. I went to film school and amassed cartoonishly high student loan debt in order to learn how to shoot and make movies. A seagull, with a brain the size of a walnut, can do a better job than most DPs I've known. Great. Like finding production work wasn't hard enough already.
