OK... New guy, first time post.
I have worked 2nd AC on some local country music videos here in Nashville. Currently, I'm working on a short film and doing a few POV shots. One of the shots requires a POV to where we see the Actor's hand reach out and point a gun. A buddy of mine works at a small ad firm and said they accomplished something just like this, but due to lack of funds (even though the agency isn't hurting), they made some sorta of helmet cam???
I was at least halfway intrigued so he sent me a link to the agency's blog describing it. Honestly, I still don't get the need for this contraption at all, but they seem pretty darn proud of it. Am I missing something? What's the point of this contraption? Judging from some of the comments on the blog, it looks like I'm not the only one; however, I'd rather ask the pros.
Here is their blog showing (and describing) the helmet cam: http://www.cjadverti...tion/#more-2881
And for reference point, here is the video they shot with it:
Thanks for any feedback. Charles Turner.
