Syrp’s sweet spot for B cameras

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.
