Checkpoint: Survey Says!

This shoot was extremely quick and easy, and we got to play around with some new equipment and a new location to boot! The office location was that of a local business who kindly allowed us in to shoot for about an hour on Saturday, an we’re thrilled they did, because the setting is perfect. I feel like the papers strewn about and office equipment present lends a sense of authenticity to the video that we aren’t often able to provide, so it was great to be acting on a really convincing set.

The new piece of equipment is a neat little Kessler Pocket Dolly we picked up. You’ll notice the camera move right at the beginning of the video. Keep an eye out for those small camera motions in future videos, because I expect that little device is going to see a lot of use.

The size of it is perfect for our needs too. We can easily transport it in the back of my car, and it takes seconds to set up and dismantle.  These are massive bonuses, given our relative distatte for planning, and effort. It’s super handy, and lets us add these cool little dynamic touches in places we weren’t prviously able. I think it’s found a good home with our group.

Cheers!

  1. I knew there was something different at the beginning, but I never guessed new tech. Cool.

  2. Does this new dolly mean we can look forward to a dolly zoom in the near future?
