Behind the Scene Shots Using a tripod, we managed to keep a steady shot of Ben walking towards the camera which we then used again for the similar shot in the other parallel world. We took the camera off the tripod to track Ben’s movement as he crosses the road. However we struggled to keep the shot steady and the effect it created was not a meaningful effect to the scene we were trying to put together. This shot was more suitable to show Ben crossing the road as we didn’t have to struggle so much with trying to achieve such a steady shot. It also adds another technique to our list of shots used.
Here we used a tripod to keep the camera steadywhilst using a panning movement as the car drivespast. Kieran drove the car as Livvy filmed Ben’s feet walking along the path. This allowed the camera to track the action whilst steadily keeping up with the pace.Using the tripod at a low angle allowed us to captureBen knocking on the door from his point of view.This again kept it steady and professional looking. We positioned the camera and tripod so that we included all the characters in this shot, achieving a wide establishing shot.
We used a Phantom HD camera to film the collisionin slow motion to add a special effect and a bit morevariety and technique to our film.
