Looks good to me. Note that now there are tags provided by upstream
(good job on that), you could, optionally, choose to upload a non-git
package that uses:
which is the reproducible archive created on that repository's Releases
page. As it is, though, this package is certainly sufficient to provide
a *-git package.

I'd also like to point to the pkgdesc... "Useful tool set for post
production" doesn't seem descriptive enough to me, I would probably use
something like "Tools for post production with GoPro cameras". Just from
looking at the PKGBUILD, I cannot tell what gopro is or why I might want
to use their tools.
This might not matter to people already looking for software that
relates to the gopro, but at least it could help people know when the
package is *not* for them.
