  1. Hello, Greetings to all. I am going to shoot a few long sequences for a narrative feature soon which is to be shot in a moving bus. The is to be shot in India where the roads are a mixed bag, some part is quite smooth and some a bit rough. Also we will be filming in an old bus whose shockers would not be in great condition. So it would be great to get few ideas around the ways in which we can accomplish some dialogue sequences in a moving bus with the best stability. Scenario 1 : A good tripod head supported by few sand bags but there will be some sensor roll off that might come in case of bumps. Is vibration isolator a good idea? Scenario 2 : Gimbal handheld or supported further by an easy rig. This seems the best option for me to try . Scenario 3: Steadycam seems like an ideal option but could be an issue when it comes to budgets etc. We would be filming this on a Red Helium with Ultra Prime lenses with a clip on matte box with some ND's. Importantly, to put the bus on a big trailer is not an option and also pulling the bus with a rope with the help another bus would be very tedious but could be considered. All suggestion on the best ways to accomplish this would be welcome. Any thoughts on help with the sync-sound would also be great. Warm regards, Shashank
  2. I have a short coming up where I'll be shooting in a subway car standing set. I need to accomplish two things: a chase for the lights within the subway tunnel and a flicker of the overhead practicals. For the flicker I'd like to see the practicals themselves. Unfortunately I have yet to scout the set as production is a mess. This is a really low budget shoot so I need to figure out something crafty. My immediate thought for the practicals was to replace the existing units with Quasar or Astera tubes (especially since the Astera can be used wirelessly). The chase and the flicker will occur in the same scene. Any advice/ideas is greatly appreciated!
