Some video geekery

ROAM: CineStar with MŌVI MR from Freefly on Vimeo.

Many years ago I managed a video/software production department. What the team would have given for access to the technology on show here. Back then cameras were big and expensive, and edit suites bigger and frighteningly expensive.

These relatively low-cost camera platforms make use of high-end DSLR cameras and are handing high video quality movie production to the small independent companies. Companies producing good storylines, while the big studios bankrupt themselves on costly ‘names’, ever more complex Computer-generated special effects, and poor scripts. By my estimate, the production equipment: RC Helicopter, Camera Gimbals and Camera used here are about $27,000. How inexpensive and cool is that!

Below is another video showing the use of a similar set of camera gimbals without the multi-rotor helicopter. Enjoy.
