Was recently Steadicam operator on "Walmart Soundcheck", featuring R&B artist Musiq Soulchild.

Walmart Soundcheck Musiq Soulchild

Camera positions included sticks, jib, slider dolly and handheld. Six songs, two passes each. Our director called shots but we each were recording iso, no line cut was done. Steadicam Flyer, Canon 5D, Zeiss 18mm 2.8 prime. 6 1/2 pound weight plate.


Enjoy...

Hi Mark, great job. I did the one for MANA ( spanish band )which goes live on the walmart site on May 1st. I was told it would be an EX-3, when I got there it was a DSLR, Glad I brought the weight plate and my Viewfactor cage. Was the director Rik from saltmind?

Ozzie,

Eric Welch directed. Prominent Nashville-based music video director. I didn't meet the out of town folks.

As for the Viewfactor cage, that's a definite plus. For other clients I've flown the 5D with cage, rods, and a rod-mounted battery.

I'll keep an eye out for your show!

Nice work Mark.
Is it only shot one time?

Thanks, Thomas.

Each song is shot twice. We're on headsets to the director, who is pointing us to shots but is not calling a live switched cut. Generally the first take is for the benefit of the jib, slider dolly and tripod shots, and I work off to the side. Second take, the handheld guy and I work closer in to the talent.

The artist or record label delivers a master mix of the audio (the best take from each song) and then the video editor matches picture back to the mix, using the best shots from each take. That's why you will occasionally see two Steadicam shots back-to-back if you watch closely.
