  1. I think it's a shame there's so few discussions in the 'Aesthetics' threads here when that's kinda the whole point of what we do, right?! I'm just hoping to leave this space open for discussion on the aesthetics of 1917. From a story and technical point of view, I found this film to be absolutely phenomenal and virtually flawless. But in talking about the look of the movie, I thought it was so beautiful and no doubt thanks to Deakins' incredible talent but of course the operators who made these frames. I was blown away and again watching the movie. A few highlights were that plane crash 'shot' and the 'shot' following George MacKay's character down the river when he begins to go under and then the slow, slow approach to fallen tree with the dozens of bodies slowly revealing themselves - eerie to say the least. I, and maybe you were too, was concerned this film as a oner would feel a bit gimmicky, but I think the lack of 'editing' and the ability to place the audience in real time with the characters was perfect. Every key piece of information was revealed to the camera at just the right time, forcing our reactions to sync up perfectly with the characters. Think - the rat and the trip wire. There is no insert shot of the rat approaching the wire to build suspense and give a wink to the audience, we see the rat at the exact moment the characters do, and only have that half second to react - just like them. Similarly, there isn't any big moments where the audience watches a character's face as they look out at something or learn new information about what's in front of them without us seeing it at the same time too. I suppose the aesthetics of this film are woven so masterfully with TIMING and for me, that's really what brought it all together. I would love to have a conversation about all things 1917 that doesn't get too technical as I see a lot of those discussions happening already! Sam.
  2. Hello people, how are you?? I was curious to know if anyone has switched from goofy to regular o viceversa...When I pictured myself operating steadicam, before owning one, I would always see myself operating goofy...specially because I thought I would have more control with my right hand, since Im right handed and footed. So when I did my workshop and started operating (and then got my own rig) I have always operated goofy...And it makes sense to have the camera on my right... If I use a skateboard or similar, I do it with my right foot in front BUT, during this 2020 quarentine, I have been bored and I took the time to practice a lot of things I dont normally practice...I would try really different drop-times, even neutral, and stuff like that...So, I also tried operating regular...At first it was a big WTF! Some basic stuff felt extremely weird, like un/docking, attaching the arm, etc...but there were 2 things that were really different and felt freaky: having the camera on my left and operating with my left hand....After some time practicing, I got used to everything pretty fast: docking, undocking, attaching the arm and even my left hand feels more precise with my sled (I still feel like when I have to whip pan or make a big tilt, for example, I Ioose precision, but im confident I can work that out)...the only thing still bothering me a little bit is having the camera on my left... But all the other things feel like regular is the correct side for me: walking feels MUCH better, positioning the arm with my right feels more SOLID, starts and lock off also look better and more solid... Also, when operating goofy I sometimes feel the need to "control" my right hand (on the sled) because I realize I am puting more grip than I should... Saldy I dont have a camera now to actually SEE if it looks better or not...this is all just FEELING. I will have my camera back in a couple of days So I guess my question is: has anyone switched and why? How does it work for you? I feel that everything is telling me to go regular but having operated so much time with the camera on my right also plays a big part in not being convinced yet... Ill appreciate any input! TIA! Nico.
  3. Hey all! I'm looking to increase my proficiency on gearhead/wheels. Any thoughts on Alpha wheels as a means to learn? Is it worth purchasing a set vs. just renting out a gearhead? Any other ideas?
  4. Hello folks, I am going to be flying a Sony Venice for a project coming up and I was wondering if anyone has ever flown that camera and if there is anything I should be aware of? As far as I know it will be with cinema glass, mb, ff, and that's about it. I will be using a Zephyr, any concerns about the payload? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hey :) , im just intrested where your weight sits at the start and at the stop of a move. On which foot? And also when moving backwards, where is the weight at the start and on which foot at the stop? And when you holding the frame in a locked position? Im flying the rig on the left side! Many thanks in advance Felix

  7. hey yall I have a shoot coming up on a roller rink. I havent been on one in a long time and am wondering if anyone has any experience shooting on one. Is the floor slick? Should I consider wearing different footwear than I usually do? I wear minimalist Merrell Bare Access, I think. They are pretty grippy. Also, I imagine that there will be a lot of low mode chasing roller skates. How is a rickshaw on a rink? Are there any other better contraptions for getting some fast low mode shots in this kind of arena? brett.
  8. Hey friends ! How are you. A question for you, Is Steadicam Zephyr HD is capable for Arri alexa ? If i replace the Steadicam Zephyr HD arm with gold spring arm , Is this ok .
  9. Hello, I was wondering if there are any specific practices to do when operating (or even when not operating) to work on improving feet/leg movement/placement. My posture seems to be fine, but sometimes I will find myself getting my legs getting into weird positions or I will walk irregularly. My Professor also noticed this, he described my movements as getting myself stuck in figurative corners, limiting my range of movement. Thank You.
  10. Kudos to Tore Livia , steadicam op and the rest of the production crew for the halftime show at the 2013 Superbowl. The opening shot with Beyonce on stage in low mode was really great. Too bad you didn't get the chance to show off the rest of your moves before the RF rig fell apart. Well done and well directing by Hamish Hamilton and AD Haley Congrats
