Navy CIS Steadicam scene or not?
Posted 25 May 2008 - 02:41 PM
yesterday I watched Navy CIS. When the crew is talking and investigate cases in their
Head Office, there are always very very cool moved pictures around the various desks.
I say it is filmed with a Steadicam but a friend (he is in the "dolly grip business") says
that it is filmed with a dolly mounted Steadicam.
Anybody here in the forum who is a camera operator in NCIS? Or just someone who knows?

I'm working on NCIS as a regular day-player. Billy Webb is the DP/Steadicam Operator on the first unit. They are doing a lot of hard mounted steadicam moves, aka, garfield-mount on a dolly.

Watch the Billy Webb part....
I hope that helps.

not sure how I feel about that. When I moved up to operator I wasn't a focus-puller/operator. A good leader/crew chief (such as a dp/key grip/gaffer/whoever) surrounds himself with competent people and lets them do their job. And we wonder why the op position has been in jeapardy. I hope he's atleast getting a huge $ bump in addition to the rental when he operates -- I assume it's his rental?

first thanks Jens for the video link. It is that kind of scene wich I mentioned.
I saw a hard mounted Steadicam here in Germany during a shot, really great shots. I think I have to try it sometime....
