Watched Star Trek yesterday and noticed a lot of steadicam shots (done extremely well by Colin Anderson). I couldn't make out if an AR was used or if there was a lot of quick editing between Steadicam shots and crane/dolly shots?

Does anyone know if the AR was used?

Why do you think it was an AR (Which it's not)?

i seem to remember quite a few running shots around the Enterprise and the camera went from low mode to high mode extremely quickly.

Just wondered!!

I wouldn't say that it went from high to low, But the set is multilevel so that might be what you are thinking is a high to lo switch

No, sorry, its not what i meant. I mean in the corridors leading up to the bridge, so same level running shots. I guess if there was no AR on the shoot, then thats my question answered.

cheers

Yeah, Colin Anderson, Andrew Rowlands (2nd Unit), and all the camera folk really rocked it out on this one. Some nice stuff, great energy without being overly-shaky or distracting.

Bravo!
