…when (and how) you might get your next gig.
Last week I shot a secret project for a corporate design firm. All shot on the Canon 7D.
It all started when a buddy of mine called asking if I knew if my dolly and jib could pull off a 180 pan (while tilting downward), with a dolly move, then a crane down, all the while tilting from the full tilt up 90 degrees to reveal the subject. Hands down I said he would need a PeeWee dolly and several offsets off the arm. Better yet with a few extensions you can sit high enough to operate while doing the move.
Long story short, he asked me if I wanted to help rent the dolly, setup the gear and operate the camera. I also ended up directing the lighting.
So in the end I was the technical Director of Photography. Odd how that happens.
The shots look great and the dolly setup and camera moves worked like a charm. Hopefully, if the project goes public I can share the results.
Thanks to Chris for being the dolly grip and electrician for the show.
