Filming a moving or static subject from a moving object is an art that I've learnt and loved for some time. Every shoot brings with it a new challenge, the environment, the weather, the brief. Whether the budget stretches to operating a camera from a state of the art stabilized head coupled to a the fantastic Russian Arm tracking vehicle, a crane or hard mounted head on the bed of a more traditional shot-maker style tracking vehicle, a helicopter, a drone or even a simple bicycle, if it moves and can be filmed from a moving object, then i'm in my element.
That moment when the vehicle and camera are in the right place at the right time, the constant communication with the crew to bring it all together, the relentless tweaking of the frame and camera settings, merging in graceful moves or just holding the perfect frame to tell the story, the whole process never fails to bring a smile time and time again.
I have many options available to ensure we have the right vehicle for the job, please get in touch to discuss your shoot.
