What is best for your film? Sliders, Jibs, or Stabilizers?
What type of camera movement is best for your film? Is it more conducive to a running handheld shot? Maybe a slow slider pan, or maybe an advanced jib/crane shot? or how about a silky smooth running stabilizer shot!
These are the sorts of questions that you need to be asking yourself when you are working on a video project. To help illustrate this point I wanted to share this great video that I came across today from Dave over at Innovate Imageworks in which he talks about Jibs, Sliders, and Stabilizers and the various uses/strong points of each of them.
Probably my favorite quote form the video, which I have embedded below, was :
When you are shooting your movie choose the shot that is best for your story, don’t just try to get the coolest shot that you can.
