You don’t necessarily need a slider. But like anything in your kit bag that produces a better shot, you often wonder later how you lived without it. The high-end movie business realised very early on that a good moving shot usually beats a static one. They spend millions on cranes, dollies and track equipment and then repeatedly go through all the logistics of getting this sometimes huge equipment in place. All this in the pursuit of smooth and precise camera movement - even if the shot only lasts a few seconds! Believe me they wouldn’t put themselves to this trouble without a good reason.
As a single operator, how do you make interviews look dynamic and interesting? And how do you make them easy to edit? The answer is simple, but the result can be stunning. Firstly, you interview your subject from static Camera A, while moving camera B back and forth. You automate the movements of Camera B using Syrp’s slider, mobile app and motion control products. The constant panning cut in with the static camera gives a truly televisual look, and unlike with a single camera angle, there’s no risk of jump cuts in the edit stage.
