Another single taker.. well almost

YouTube - Shihad - Ignite HD Web.mov

Steadicam Pilot, Canon 5D with a 16mm lens, 1080 25p with a post slow down by 50%.

Im a bit gutted about the cut at the end but i see 100% why the director did it.. we were meant to originally end on a close up of the girl and not fly back out of the building.

Watch it in HD and enjoy.

Great Steadicam work Joe! Perfect framing. Congratulations. It would be great to see a picture of the Pilot/5D configuration you have used. Have you achieved the max Pilot load?
Thanks
Amedeo

Excellent operating Joe. Very impressive horizons for a Pilot.

I wouldn't be gutted about the last cut. Your shot remains intact. Can't think of how many times we've struggled to shoot elaborate one'rs and then the final result gets chopped into little pieces. This one was a win.

Nice work Joe.

3.2 aspect ratio - that's a pretty extreme crop! but it's effective for the piece. And the color-grade is nicely done too.

Tell me... now if the whole this was slowed down to 50% then ...the singer who comes into-shot at around 1m42secs, he must have been lip-synching to that song being played during that take at double-speed? So that when it's slowed down to 50% in post, then his lips synch to the song when it's played back at normal speed in the final edit? am i right on that?

thanks for the comments guys, especially you Charles, feedback like that made my day!

turns out the cut was made due to the client wanting it.. not the director.. the director was very against the whole thing.. but, clients are clients and are paying the bills.

I have posted a bit more information up on the steadicam forum, under the Journals section for those interested.

Stu, yup playback was double time.. which made my work a lot easier.. if i had been moving that slow it would have been veeeerryy hard with such a lightweight rig!

Amedeo - Pilot was closeish to full weight. Heres a pic -

Not only great horizons, but smart and effective compositions, smooth motion paths with no weave or bounce. Really impressive work!

Big rigs...who needs big rigs. (OK, we still need them but this is so good). Excellent work and it's great that we can view it so easily. A few years ago we'd have to see this in a theater.

How's the project going Charles?
