The Shape (The experiment part 2)

15 01 2010

Here’s a short film Adam and me made sometimes last month. This was done as part of our experiment with storyboarding, DOP and equipment. We were only using my 500D with 50mm f/1.8, 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 and Pentex 135 f/3.5. Only available lights were used. We got the chance to try out the my DIY mini dolly and the new glidecam we just acquired. I think it took us about 6 hours to get the whole story done. Could’ve been better if we had done pre-planning before shooting hahaha but it was all good and fun.


Glidecam Experiment

8 01 2010

Hi. It’s been a while I’ve posted here. Will try to blog more often. Anyways, here’s a short video that we put together testing the Glidecam 4000 Pro & Smooth Shooter. I was operating the XL2 on the glidecam while Adam was on the 500D with the shoulder mount.

This video was actually done after we got back from a wedding. It was really fun BUT tiring! Sore shoulder and back! I was operating the glidecam from 10-530, so yea… but it was really fun. I need more practice with it, but I’m getting the hang of it now. Can’t wait to take it out to the next wedding.

Oh yea, speaking of weddings, for 2010, I will be doing more wedding coverage with my partner in crime, VAdam Groves of Visual Dimensions Productions. I will be one of the 3 camera operators and the glidecam operator as well. I will try to blog more about my experience with the glidecam in the near future. If anyone’s interested to learn or share knowledge about the glidecam, please do so and email me surkrew[at]gmail[dot]com.
