Short Teaser - Glidetrack Footage
John Moon John Moon is offline May 7th, 2009, 03:45 PM

This was a wedding we filmed last weekend. Has some Glidetrack footage in there. A simple tool used just right can really add a cinematic touch.

Nice teaser. I like how you incorporated a few GT shots and didn't overuse it. Good stuff. The interviews with the B&G were nice too.

Nice work!
Those big bright windows in the church look like a pain to expose correctly.
The glidetrack is great, i love mine too.

Those windows were a pain. We had 4 lights to help compensate. Arri 650 and 3 Lowell 250 watt. It helped a lot on the mid to closeup shots but the windows were still killers on the wide shots.

Well, this is my first post here, so hi to all :) , and I should agree that the Glidetrack is a superb addition for some really good-looking shots in weddings, especially preparations (and the above video makes nice and elegant use of the GT). It's also extremely easy to setup and use, provided you know what to do with it. We own one for a couple of months now, but it hasn't been used to a wedding yet, just for a mini-documentary about nature and a tv-commercial and it did great. But we plan to use it very soon in a wedding that the bridal room will be comfortable enough to work with it properly.

It does add some depth to your production. This is also useful during the wedding if you plan accordingly. We use it in the aisle during the ceremony to do a lateral slide or set it next to the seats and do a push toward the couple. If you have a 3rd camera, use it on a tripod to do a few reveal shots during the ceremony.

I haven't ever thought about the idea using GT in the ceremony because of the bad habit of Greek weddings that everyone wants to be standing up and near the couple (and this translates to mayhem). But I ike so much your idea of that kind of use, that I will have to find a workaround in the church. Thanks! :)

Thanh, thanks for watching. No Steadicam. I will be getting the Steadicam Pilot. I have actually become quite proficient with using a monopod and I use some of the techniques you would actually employ with a Steadicam or Glidecam. Walking properly and the use of arching will help. We shoot with Canon A1's.
