Some of this looks like under cranked Steadicam, some looks like Techno crane. Anyone know who shot the two spots on their site?


There is a link on the right side of the page for their commercials.

Hey Robert,

How are ya, Remember me from the workshop you sat in on?

Anyway I saw that commercial and it does look like its undercranked but the speed the operator would have to move at to get that shot t play back like that would be rediculous. I bet its all done in post!

Maybe a bit late, but I asked one of the runners in the ads and here is his reply:

"The Director is Ken Arlidge, the steadicam operater was a french guy named Jaques Jouffret. He was using a top of the line flyer and they also shot with a cherry-picker, one of those assembled cranes, and an ATV.

Most all of it was shot steadicam, and that guy was booking it to keep up with us, he was reeeally talented. Ken did a few handheld shots for the low ones and overcranked ones too.

Tell those guys they are full of it, we really do move that fast! I don't think they undercranked it or sped it up in post at all."
