Golden Lights is my last video project about lights and surfing.

I had the chance to capture beautiful lights on one of my favourite surf spot (Brétignolles, France). There were good waves and a lot of surfers. The conditions were perfect. I wanted to represent this moment with a music which inspired me.

Golden Lights was shared on Spotsurf !


Check it out ;)

When I came back from Peru, Manuel Leray (Fresh Collabs Co-founder and CEO) proposed me to join his team in their new start-up adventure, called Fresh Collabs.

I share a lot of values with the project, that’s why I accepted.

Fresh Collabs build what we call « artistic solidarity collaborations ». Each week, we collaborate with a creative designer and an association. We create a tee-shirt collection with the designer. This collection is sold on our website during one week. 5 € of each tee-shirt sold is given to the association which we are in collaboration.

With Fresh Collabs we make the most beautiful inspirations, a support to people who need it.

Check out the teaser ;)

I have a new steadicam !

A steadycam is a camera stabilizator. It mechanically isolates the camera from the operator’s movement. It allows for a smooth shot, even when moving quickly over an uneven surface. You can see the results on my instagram video below.

My steadicam is a Wieldy, a Chinese brand which is a perfect copy of a Glidecam product (the leader on the steadycam market). A Wieldy steady have exactly the same quality than Glidecam, but it is cheaper. You can easily found it on ebay.

Can’t wait to use it for my new video projects ;)

I have the opportunity to do one semester in another country for my studies. I am very interested by the culture of Latin America, that’s why I chose to go to Peru !

I am actually in Lima for an international semester at USIL (Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola).

I decided to work on a new video project to value my Peruvian experience.

This video project is a webserie called « Peruvian Life ».
I will produce 5 videos to present my 5 months of traveling and living in Peru.

One city, One country, 5 months … Peruvian Life

Check out the teaser ;)

Peruvian Life – Teaser from Romain Briolet on Vimeo.

I had the opportunity to shot Antoine Joneau during a wakebord session on the TSN44 cablepark based in Saint-Viaud (France).

I wanted to do a slowmotion edit, that’s why I shoted in 720p 60 fps. In fact the more frame per second you have, the better quality you have for a slowmotion edit. I used a specific plugin, called Twixtor, to slow down my videos.

This plugin is very efficient and easy to use. You can found it on this website : www.revisionfx.com/products/twixtor

Check out the quality of the results !
