Posted:Ok this is an idea i have had for a while but lack the means and funds to produce so i thought i'dthrow it into the open arena for otehrs to try. my idea was to put small cameras in the ends of the poi, and have the images shown side by side, it would be a real head**** but would make some really interesting watching

Posted:Great idea smile

we tried it with a small camera - the effect works becasue we had the camera facing up the chain.......that way it remains in the whole shot giving it something constant to focus on.

But using two biggrin, id need to get another camera rolleyes

Buzzsaws would look crazy!

biggrin.

Posted:hmmm the problem would come in providing viewers with enough frames per second to guage just wtf is happening on screen.

30 fps minimum camera with a slow twirling object could suffice, particularly if the camera faced the twirler as it spun, as the twirler's body could serve as a point of reference.

yes, it is an idea worthy of exploration!

you can spin sticks as slow as you like and using isolation and translation type moves would produce some lovely video methinks...

how about two camera's on opposite ends of a staff?




We tried this. Well, we gaffa'd a cam to one end, and a bit of brick to the other for balance, and did a bit of contact. Came out pretty cool. Would need to be cunningly edited in to a longer section from a different angle in order to look fully cool.

Posted:That's a cool idea. Though that would need to be intercut with other footage too, as what we see isn't a patch on what the audience sees.
