we’ve had the opportunity of shooting at some very interesting locations. Some of my favorite experiences have been at factories, farms, and restaurants.
Because we did a good deal of pre-production we were able to scope out some prime action that we wanted to shoot, but decided to plan out some more advanced tactics of capturing that action, so we used our slider setup.
A lot of people have seen a slider before, at least in some behind the scenes footage for a film. What this piece of equipment does is it allows one to have a smooth motion to their camera. Standard tripods allow for some panning and tilting motion. A slider though provides a means to some slightly more advanced versions of those motions that offer an intriguing view of your video.
As opposed to one angle, the slider provides a constantly changing perspective for your viewer to experience your video world. Motion means the action is going somewhere, and people will stick around to see where it ends up.
