I can't remember the last show I saw with a beautiful audience-wowing pan or sudden scene-stopping tilt. And with all the gimbals, and sliders, and ever-more intricate computer-controlled remote camera heads available does it make sense to bother with a fluid head on sticks anymore? Or are styles of camera movement cyclical and we'll see cinematographers dust off their Vintens and O'Connors for a renaissance of classic camera moves? Or am I just not very observant and can't see that fluid head moves are as common as they ever were?
As part of our student film, we'd like to have a long steadicam shot which employs a varying dutch angle. If we add the tilting with After Effects, would the result be the same as if we had done it physically? Ed
I am planning to shoot a choreographed dance scene on a rooftop and am seeking any tips for shooting in an uncontrolled environment with a standard Canon 5D or 7D. Should i avoid harsh lighting and shoot after sunrise or before sunset? What budget lights or gels would assist? Also with dynamic shots can i still achieve nice sweeping pans left-right following the dancer without a steady cam apparatus? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
