Hey Guys n Gals,

 

I was on a shoot up in Gunnedah for a few weeks and during the down time I watched a bunch of BTS stuff from films. One of the films that cought my attention was the BTS for GIJoe Retaliation.

 

Check out the clip at 14:10

 

Hes holding the mattebox. You can see him doing it a whole buch through the video.

 

So, have you guys seen the technique of the steadicam op in the fight scenes?

Is this sort of thing common?

Do you Guys n Gals have any interesting techniques like this that are part of your bag of tools?

 

I thought it was super interesting and very counter intuitive to what I previously thought about steadicam. I figured putting my hands anywhere but the grip was totally off limits but I guess if it gets the shot, it gets the shot.

 

Anyway, thought it was interesting and thought I'd share :)

I learned this from my mentor.

This is a very effective technique to mimic handheld shot.

The result shot is much better and smoother.

 

Cheers,

 

Ken Nguyen.
