Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Sep 14 2004


I’ve finally uploaded some test footage for the glidecam. Nothing particularly exciting as far as subject matter goes; simply me walking and runnning around in and out of my apartment. As you can see, I still need to work on my technique and tweak the weights a bit more, but overall I think it’s pretty good, much better than straight handheld in any case. The biggest problem is in the panning right and left, I think.

Dean and I have been going back and forth on the script for the past few days, but we both hope to have a final version printed and bound within a week. Everyone was doing such a good job with the rehearsals I decided to skip it this weekend and return to it the week after. Dolly’s shot at the beach is still up in the air; we’ll see how the weather holds out. I hope we can get it done before the weather gets too cold for swimming.

  1. The turns are rather rough but it’s a nice smooth ride. It’s like the Shining except it appears to be going somewhere. And thanks for the tour of your apartment. 🙂 –Kuz

  2. Oops, I guess I should have cleaned up a bit before doing the test. And put on a shirt, fer cryin’ out loud.

    Yeah, the panning is rough because the camera is very sensitive to horizontal movement. I need a strategy to deal with it, as well as more practice.
