  1. I actually heard in an interview that they wanted that scene to feel less stable, and have somewhat of a handheld feeling, hence the bounciness. Believe they used the StabilEye for that shot, but I'm not 100% sure.
  2. Kevin, I've noticed you responding only in DM in a few threads, curious why as it detracts from the format of an open forum. Others who find this post will miss out on any information you could've shared in an open response to OP's question. Just curious, cheers.
  3. This takes the cake, Charles! :D As an update, around November of last year I purchased my M-1, G-70x and Walter Klassen vest (after trying all my friends vests, thanks guys!) I've spent enough time in this business to know you buy right or buy twice, so while that initial buy-in wasn't cheap, I did find a great used deal on the sled and the whole kit has been absolutely fantastic thus far. I'm grateful to have been getting lots of calls and spending LOTS of hours flying it both on and off set, getting better every day. I look forward to also booking an SOA course once things are back to normal. Thanks all for the insight so far.
  4. Thanks for the great advise, Lisa! Yes we certainly did work together, about a decade ago believe it or not! It was a film John Matysiak was shooting. How time flies. Would love to catch up sometime! Let me know next time you end up in LA for work. :)
  5. Thanks Lawrence, so you've experienced this as well? I've watched the videos, other than the 'click as you go' method I didn't see anything that addressed this particular issue but maybe I missed it.
  6. Hey all, been using my new Volt recently, absolutely love it. I do have an issue though, if I tilt to a specific frame, and then press the volt button, the tilt motor bumps or 'knocks' upwards slightly, which disturbs the frame. It seems that if I press the button and then only tilt a small amount before pressing it again it doesn't always bump. But if I go from looking straight forward (0° tilt) to 45° and press the button, it bumps before settling back to the position where I pressed the button. Using on an M-1, double and triple checked dynamic and neutral balance, Volt is on firmware 1.7. Any insights?
  7. Also, I failed to mention any wisdom, advice, recommendations for this beginner are greatly appreciated!
  8. I agree! Roger, Charlie Rizek and Pete Cavaciuti did a stunning job with the camera work in this film. I love how each brought a different strength and skill set to the film in how they moved the camera. Sort of the ultimate example of tools existing to serve the story, and not the other way around. I love this video ARRI put together, despite being a bit of a sales pitch for the Mini LF, there are some great tidbits of knowledge here.
  9. Hey all! I'm a Los Angeles based Local 600 Camera Operator, beyond excited to be joining the Steadicam family. I've been camera operating for over ten years, and a few years ago added the Ronin 2 to my toolbox for lightweight remote head use, with the occasional handheld job. In the latter situation however, I would much rather be on Steadicam! I have training scheduled with Greg Smith (Steadicam Lessons) soon, and have started the process of hunting down components for the rig I'd like to build. Beyond that, I hope to start spending time in the rig doing music videos, short/student films, etc to start getting those hours in, along with additional training w/ Greg. Looking back I wish I'd made this jump a long time ago, but hey, better late than never, right? :) Cheers and thank you all for the wealth of knowledge already shared here on this fantastic site.
  10. Brian, you have the original Flyer, or the Flyer LE? Though it's not recommended, tests like these make me that much more confident in the quality and reliability of these systems.
  11. Charles, this is something I would definitely be interested in after I get my rig! I am in LA so if it is a local guy who does the mods, or if I can bring my rig in to someone, that wouldnt be a problem.
  12. Weight. A lot of friends own RED systems, and I would like to be able to fly those as well as larger shoulder cams like the F900, Varicam, etc. Even these are at the top of the Flyer LE's capacity, but it is really all I can afford.
  13. Sorry for all the questions being spread out over different posts, new things have been hitting me as I have been searching around the boards. I tried the search function for some of my questions, and didn't come up with anything, others led to pages which led to pages which eventually led to some discussion which helped. Thanks for the tips, Erik.
