Before filming, we had to make ourselves familiar with some of the equipment we had that we might not have used before. This was so we weren’t having to figure out how to use the equipment when it came to actually filming as that would eat into our time when on location.
For me this isn’t too big of an issue as I have an unlimited amount of time on location, however I still learnt how to use the equipment now, for the possibility I may not be able to figure out how to use it on the day.
The steadicam is a piece of equipment meant to reduce the shake of a camera when shooting shots where using a tripod or a dolly, is either very expensive or impossible.
I did some test shots outside.
Other than this piece of equipment I did not think I would need any other equipment so the steadicam was all I tested.
