Steadicam Timeslice rig?
Posted 05 January 2004 - 11:27 AM
There is a photo in Blain Brown's book 'Cinematography' (Focal Press, 2002) showing what appears to be a small timeslice rig (I don't have the book with me, but I think it's about 10-15 still cameras between motion cameras at each end) attached to a steadicam operator.
I am wondering if (a) this is what I think it is, and if it is then (b ) is this a technique that is used much or anyone has done themselves, how well does it work, and are there any good examples of it on the screen? Plus if anyone had information on rigs like this that were up and running in the UK, I'd be very interested to know.
I'm not a steadicam operator, but I am doing a bit of research into the possibilities for filming some timeslice shots of big snakes. A mobile rig like this could present some interesting possibilities...
