Shooting Styles: Handheld, Tripod, and Steadicam
Occurred on Tuesday, 11 August 2015
Guest Speaker: Andy Levison
Original event synopsis
Shooting style can have a big impact on how a director's vision is captured. How do you select the best to tell your story? Andy Levison will give a live demonstration of shooting the same scene with each of three styles - first on a tripod, then handheld, and finally with a Steadicam.
The audience will see the scenes being shot live, then the video will be played back, so that the audience can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each shooting style for telling a story. This presentation is designed for cinematographers, directors, producers, actors and anyone interested in cinematic style.
