Hi all,

I will start this topic with a weird setup I had on the shooting with the new 416 :

(edit : Picture will be back soon, smaller ! )

(edit : Picture will be back soon, smaller ! )


They needed a wide angle static shot inside the Sorbonne, the Grips where gone on the next location building a crane on tracks with remote head for a complex shot on the beautiful Alexander III bridge that is across the Seine river near the Champs-Elysées, so without the proper equipment I had to do like that...
It did the trick and the DoP found the set-up great.


Now your turn !

Okay. It's not Steadicam but had to shoot the POV of a sniper thru his scope.

It usually starts with the words: we are a low budget production....

Kareem, may I suggest that you resize your pictures to something like 400x600?

This takes aaaaaages to load

Best,

Rob

Here's a picture of the "low budget" I'm working on now.
Kind of a standard setup I guess.

Info for Clipper II owners w/G-50. the arm is at 49 of its 50 pounds.

Hi Rob,

Sorry !, I'll come back tomorrow to resize my pictures, been ultra busy lately, looks like everything in my life decided to go crazy... I seriously think someone should do a movie depicting it.

Daniel, nice setup.

Thanks Erwin, I was waiting for super interesting pictures from you.

Chris, Nice Low-Mode, the Clipper and G-50 ?, interesting.

Funny Antlers Guido !

Keep them coming !

Shooting chase scenes at Bangkok, motorbike zig-zagging through traffic.
This is the Action-Unit for Bangkok Dangerous, with Nicolas Cage.

Never saw him though, only the stunt-doubles.

Quad-bike (700cc) with hardmount (my design + Klassen arm)
Lite-Panel on the camera for nice reflection on the helmet.
Progear arm, Steadicam master (converted)
435+Ultraprimes

What would have been a pretty easy Steadicam shot (rush in at gurney and boom up/tilt down to get a down angle on the patient's face) became more tricky when it needed to be handheld, so I enlisted dolly grip Sean Devine to join in once the camera needed to go airborne. What I would have assumed to have been a nightmare of wrestling the frame between two people was actually remarkably easy, given that we were both going for the same frame! We were able to track with the gurney into the ambulance with just the desired results.

Scary-looking Chris--were you buckled to that center column I hope? either way, I'd have the grips build out that platform for you next time, not much room for error there!

p.s. before someone else says it, you'll need to redo your screen name with your full name...

p.p.s. yeah Geoff, that was an XL, and the 2-man apportion of weight made it not that bad really.
