The Osmo Action is often regarded as the ultimate film-making tool that empowers creators to push the boundaries of creativity. In this blog, we will take you through a range of different osmo Action tips that were inspired by Josh Yeo, the founder of Mark.Art.Now.

The action places you right into the action giving you the whole world of immersive cinematography in your hands. With it's portability and durability, the Osmo Action can film from special angles, inside objects and more unique positions that can't be done with a standard normal camera. These places can be from your coffee cup to your eggs! The only limit to these places is your imagination! Read on to learn more! 

Get creative with household objects! 

Use the Action to add an interesting perspective to your content by placing it inside of different household objects and perhaps make a short film of you cooking! eating! mucking around! or perhaps become to the new how to basic. Here are a few ideas. 

Coffee Cup 

What could be better than a cup of coffee? Nothing. 

However, you can get creative with the cup by placing the Osmo Action face up inside a coffee cup to get an interesting shot!

There is no secret box of chamber when it comes to creative film-making. The key to creating magic is finding a mundane object and turning it into something interesting. A nice trick is to place your Osmo Action inside the box and for you, or someone else, to open it up. You can include something disgusting in the box to try and get their reaction! Perhaps you could try and surprise someone with a gift and use the Osmo Action to capture their surprise! The possibilities are endless!

The refrigerator shot has been replicated time after time by many different film-makers, yet it is so effective when it comes to story telling. You can try spice it up by placing it ontop of different food products, behind a drink or inside a bowl of salad!

Kitchen Drawers

When one drawer closes, another opens. Shooting with Osmo Action instead of a regular camera gives you plenty of options for creating dynamic transition shots in tight spaces. Follow the movement when you open a drawer to add a cinematic shot to your indoor film. Flip the Action to it faces you and pick it up as if you were picking up an utensil of some-sorts.
