‘Hardcore’ heads forward; Action-packed movie filmed using GoPro camera POV (VIDEO)

Set in video game-style, “Hardcore” is perhaps the first feature film shot almost exclusively from the main character’s perspective, using GoPro cameras for the majority of the filming.

Writer-director Ilya Naishuller, of the punk band Biting Elbows, helped create a similar styled music video last year titled “Bad Motherfucker.” The video grabbed more than 40 million views, but also grabbed the attention of director/producer Timur Bekmembatov.

Bekmembatov contacted Naishuller and “Hardcore” was born, which features a resurrected cyborg who is kidnapped by a rogue militia.

The primary shooting for the film is already completed, but it still requires finishing work, such as computer-generated effects and sound design.
