Hey y'all, long time no post!
Just thought I'd share a link with you of a project I did many moons ago (this site was only recently brought to my attention)
it's called My Big Head.
A bunch of short idents for Nickelodeon.
It was a very interesting mix of using Steadicam with greenscreen to make a bunch of short, animated station I.D.'s
I used Steadicam mostly to add movement where there was none (i.e. a car driving)
Certainly not a very overt way of using Steadicam but it was an interesting project (especially working with so many kids!)
A lot of the movement is very subtle though there's a few films where it's very obvious (the rock-band promo for one)

Also, if you check out the "About this project" page you can see some behind the scenes pictures (and they even spelt my name right...a real first!)
Hope you like it, at the very least you'll have to agree it's original.

Peace, Ruben "Extremely animated person" Sluijter
