GoPro In Tow For Riot House Productions
In the beginning, there were four guys and a GoPro embedded camera. Now they’re partners
together in the video production company – and still have their GoPro in tow…

iot House Productions, the
company behind the Sex Room
Sessions and the Top of the Coope
Show, is now a trusted partner
for leading brands in the world of
sports, cosmetics and well-known
institutional stakeholders.
Since the four friends turned
business partners started filming
in 2009, they have given their video
projects an offbeat, innovative
angle, combining new technologies
with the highest production values.
Whether making their first video
hits on the web to create coverage
of international events, the Riot
House Production team has always
relied on the same basic gear to
provide vital support for projects
large and small. The GoPro onboard camera is one of those
key components.
“We’re creative so our clients
expect us to take an innovative
production approach. Using GoPro
cameras means that we can take
modern, intrusive shots,” says CoManager Jean-Charles Belmont. “In
the early days, we had two GoPro
HERO1 cameras; now we also have
two GoPro HERO3 Black Edition
cameras. This kind of hardware is
perfect for meeting our increasingly
diverse needs as we expand.”
Riot House Productions began
as a start up on a small scale
budget with limited equipment
but wanted to film pioneering and
inventive perspectives. The costeffective Hero cameras from GoPro
enabled them to create a look
and feel typically associated with
45mm broadcast cameras from
the beginning. As they grow, the
cameras are still able to meet their
demands due to the professional,
cinema-quality video.
Fans refer to the cameras as
the “most versatile in the world”.
Designed by and for lovers of
outdoor adventure, GoPro boasts
resolution that’s sharp enough for
pro as well as amateur needs.

GoPro cameras are completely
different to the usual kit used by
filmakers and for that reason they
continue to surprise
pro-filmakers
who discover
their features.
Due to being
so small and
light, GoPro
cameras
can
be
positioned
in small
spaces
and through
intimate
close ups,
filmmakers
are able to capture an entirely
unique perspective.
For Riot House Productions,
the GoPro is the lynchpin of all
outdoor filming: “We tend to use
GoPro cameras a lot in the world
of sport. For board sports and
motor sports, the GoPro camera
is a must. It’s Iightweight and
powerful so we also use it for aerial
photography, mounted on a drone,”
explains Jean-Charles Belmont.
Using various mounts, the team
is able to place the camera close
to the human body and in places
which are usually inaccessible.
The flat-lens waterproof housing
means that they can capture sharp
images, even underwater for board
sport projects.
Due to the HD and broadcast
quality footage it provides, GoPro
has made a name for itself as an
enabling company. Collectively
more professional athletes,
filmmakers, and creative artists
are using GoPro than any other
camera in the world to capture
everything from competition
footage to television commercials
to feature-length films. As a result,
GoPro has captured 95% of the
global wearable camera market and
over 32% of the global small form-

GoPro cameras are hailed as the “most versatile in the world”

GoPro’s
HERO3 line up

factor video camera market, making
GoPro’s HERO line of cameras the
best selling small video cameras in
the world. The camera has come
a long way from the disposable
camera that CEO and Founder, Nick
Woodman got his inspiration from.
Remote Control App
The world of GoPro just got a
little bigger, as did its fanbase:
the GoPro app now means users
can control their GoPro from a
distance – and preview the video
they shoot. For filmmakers, this
opens up all sorts of possibilities
and adds a new dimension to the
creative process. “This really is a
revolution: you no longer need to be
in physical contact with the GoPro
to change settings; you can access
everything via the app. What’s more,
the preview function works really
well – we use it pretty much all the
time” adds Jean-Charles Belmont.
For production companies like
Riot House, the app has completely
changed how they work, giving
more creative control and enabling
users to preview content more
conveniently. Being able to use
your smart device to remotely turn
on and control your GoPro, seeing
what your camera sees, opens up
all sorts of interesting new ideas.

The ProTune feature enables
much higher quality throughout
post-production workflow, helping
filmmakers to produce more
dynamic images. In fact, in ProTune
recording mode the camera gives
the team high data rate (3545Mbps) h.264, with added log
curve encoding and neutral colour
profile. ProTune combined with the
capabilities of the HERO3 Black
Edition lets professionals shoot
fl at or at broadcast resolutions,
complementing pre and post
workflows. Those desiring the
highest possible resolutions will
appreciate the 2.7KP-30 fps and
4KP-15 fps video modes.
GoPro is helping Riot House
Production line up one project
after another. The team is just back
from the 24H Dubai endurance
race, preparing to leave for Turkey,
where they’ll be filming at a clothing
brand’s production facilities. The
four friends are now a team of
experienced professionals, hired
to cover the most demanding
events – like the recent car race
in Dubai, 24 hours non-stop at
185 mph. Wherever they are, their
GoPro cameras are with them, right
where the action is – and always
ready for the next take.
