Hello all ! Long time lurker and reader but infrequent poster.
I have been operating about once every 2 months or so for about 6 years now, and this is the first time I have had to handle the situation. I am doing an experimental dance work that requires a single take 23 minute shot with 6 dancers. Halfway through the take there is a "tumbling" and the director wants to switch the camera into lowmode ( and maintain the inverted footage ) for roughly 1 minute of the take. After that minute, we slowly roll back up into standard operation.
is there anything besides a LARGE drop time that anyone can think of that would help me to maintain proper operation and steady shots when rotating into this fake low mode? ( not using the low mode bracket simply inverting the sled). When i switch to this fake low mode operation becomes very difficult due to the balance and keeping horizon and wobble to a minimum is hard to say the least.
any help would be great, thanks !
