A Little Rain in Atlanta
Cody Dulock Cody Dulock is offline May 25th, 2010, 09:32 AM

Shot completely on two 5D Mark II's with glidecam, zaza slider, manfrotto 561bhdv monopod, tripods, and a redrock rig. We had an array of old Nikon prime lenses, but only used a couple of them... maybe next time I will play with the rest of them :) We used the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS, Sigma 24-70 DG EX 2.8, Canon 24-105 4.0 IS, Nikon 24mm 2.8, and the Nikon 50mm 1.4.

It was funny because it was sunny as it could be the day before the wedding and the day after, but rainy and gloomy on the day of the wedding. Luckily this couple knew how to have fun no matter what the situation was and that made it a breeze to film.

Hey Cody...

I wish we had a "like" button on this forum... The intro was great with the scenes of the rain splashing down. That and the song seemed to set the mood for me. I thought the intro steady cam shots were a little fast for the beat though. I dug the split screen... Great Job! Was this a destination wedding for you?

Also, how did your zaza slider work out? I built one and it tends to work great at times and not so great at others. I came up with the hypothesis that it might have something to do with the temperature of the rails. When I pull it out of my hot car it slides perfect but when I use it in a cold reception hall "not so great".

Stephen, thanks for the kind words and honest thoughts!

We are based out of the Dallas Fort Worth area of Texas, so it was a "destination" wedding for us.

I had a 5 ft zaza slider I built and it worked great for about 30" then it would stick like crazy! I had it 5ft for narrative style productions, but now I primarily do weddings, so I cut it in half. It will slide smoothly back and forth for the whole rail... sometimes (the cold probably doesn't help since metal expands and contracts). I found a quick and dirty way to align the bearings though (assuming you have tapped the wholes on the ends to put stoppers that the bearings could hit)... hit the carriage against the stoppers on one side a few times, a little force is ok... and that should do it. If it makes them stick more, slide it to the other side of the rail and do it. I have found that my bearings get out of alignment almost every single time I put it in my bag with glidecam, monopod, and tripod (sachtler tripod bag). The slider is really more trouble than what it's worth IMO. I have screwed up many shots because of it sticking in the middle of a slide. I'm looking into buying some parts from PBC to build a new one or buy a DP Slider. The DP Slider is the perfect size/weight and the atlas has the perfect slide. I just wish someone could figure out a way to create some kind of adjustable "drag" on a slider... I think that would be the cats meow. Once that's done, add that to a slider that won't rust and will work in all type of conditions... that would be amazing.

Cody...

Sorry for somewhat stealing the thread... but, what a great idea to cut the rail in half. I didn't even think of that. I love my slider and when it works great it's awesome. My only complaint was that I bought a rail that is just a bit to long for weddings. What did you use to cut it into? I have entire metal shop to work with...

Steve

Also, Thanks for the advice on the quick way to align my bearings. I've been having to adjust with an allen wrench before every shoot.

A dewalt miter saw with a metal cutting disc. This kept the cut nice and straight... I'm sure there are other tools you could use, that is just the best tool I had access to.
