What is the correct dolly for this shot?
Drew Angle posted a topic in Grip & RiggingI will be shooting a music video in Los Angeles at the end of the month where the director wants to film a series of push ins on the artist sitting in different locations. These shots will be in a variety of terrains: indoors, outdoors and some in a forest location. Our budget is under $1500 for this specific tool. The desire is to be on wider lenses – likely a 35mm anamorphic. The shot should move straight in towards the subject. My current thought is to use a doorway dolly on track, but I want to give the director the greatest length of movement possible and I'm afraid I will quickly see the track in the shot if I pull back too far. I'm wondering if some type of arm / jib that extends forward from the dolly could buy us some distance?I'm really not too familiar using dollys and not sure what to be looking for. I also don't want to over complicate the setup. Thanks! Drew
How can we play with the roll axis?
Jan Tore Soerensen posted a topic in General DiscussionGood afternoon! I am a huge fan of creative cinematography. Obviously we create images that first and foremost enhance our story, but personally, I like to be creative with it. Now after watching AHS, using the roll-axis has been stuck on my mind for a while, but as far as I can tell, this is usually done by huge heads on cranes. We have a Ronin, but it doesn't seem like we can actually controll this axis. Any ideas from the seasoned cinematographers in here? Also, is there an industry name for these shots? Thanks!
Cinematography Practices & Exercises
Alvin Joo posted a topic in Students and New FilmmakersAfter a summer of not doing much but making lattes for Hollywood folks and making a short film that I ended up not finishing, I feel behind as a student filmmaker. Are there any simple but effective practices that a person with a camera can get in the habit of to improve their skills? Skills such as: framing, camera movement, lighting, and composition. An example I heard of was to film ten second clips displaying dramatic light changes ie: striking a match in a dark room. I hope many can chime in on this!
