It seems like nowadays you can film a video on damn near anything. Every phone comes with a camera that’s halfway decent, and decent cameras that aren’t built into your phone aren’t incredibly expensive. A couple hundred dollars can get you a high-quality camera and a decent editing system, and you’re set to make whatever type of visual you want to make. Hell, one of the main advancements in phones over the last couple years has been the camera quality they’ve been able pack into the small devices. You can shoot 4K videos with the new iPhone! Cooking shows, short films, music videos. Whatever you want. You can make quality nowadays without having to empty your bank account.
Mac Miller teamed up with Pitchfork and GoPro for his new visual for “Clubhouse,” which was shot entirely with a GoPro HERO4 Black, to showcase this ability. While this is one of the higher-end GoPros and Mac (among others about to be named) don’t NEED to shoot low-budget videos, artists like The Weeknd, Ludacris & The Roots, Prof, Jared Evan, Dayne Jordan and more have all shown what a moderately priced camera can deliver in terms of a video.
Watch Mac’s “Clubhouse” video below, and if you haven’t copped GO:OD AM, wake up and grab yourself a copy.
