Beginning today and running through October 31, Action Cam by Sony will debut 10 new 'Never Before Seen' films on the Action Cam by Sony YouTube channel. The first new film -- Invisible Man -- comes from filmmaker, Vine star, and YouTube personality Zach King. Invisible Man tells the story of how King takes an unusual stroll by utilizing visual illusion allowing people to see through him.

"As a leader in creativity, we wanted to enable these talented visionaries the opportunity to bring their captivating films to life and give viewers the chance to see what's possible," says Yoshiyuki Nogami, Senior General Manager of Marketing Division in Digital Imaging Business Group of Sony. "We're excited to share and connect people through these unique stories and inspire the next great filmmaker or artist through the Action Cam films being shared around the world."

The remaining 'Never Before Seen' videos released in the coming months will touch on a variety of subjects ranging from space exploration and the celebration of dance, to the culture of indigenous people and so much more. Greg Hackett's Thin Air takes viewers into extreme altitudes where consumer drones have never gone before. Jourdain May's Move celebrates the beauty of dance to the exquisite sound of the violin that challenges the clichés we expect of hip-hop. Duncan Winecoff's Inuit brings audiences inside a remote community that thrives in an environment of beauty and harsh conditions.

"The Action Cam by Sony provides filmmakers with advanced technology and video producing capabilities, putting the control of every artist's vision in their own hands to produce stunning results they can't get with any other camera," says Yoshiyuki Nogami.
