Ed Im a bit confused .. you say you are an owner of a stills rental shop.. so a shoot at Universal means you drive your van in the gates and off load the rental gear..  Ive never seen a stills shoot with 18K HMI,s .. don't they use a flash.. 30 foot of tracks..20kg loaded up cameras..?  anyway let me reiterate .. to just say dont work on under staffed shoots put together by unscrupulous producers might sound ok from behind the counter of a shop but its not helpful for those being put in danger by such practices .. ?

Also looking back at that video.. the shots are all pretty wide..they might have had a FP I dont know.. but I feel for that type of basically documentary type shooting you are choosing your focus totally on the fly .. and without thinking about it much.. just intuitively .. and a FP wouldn't be able to mind read you..  

 

The flowcine Serene is for gimbals big enemy.. the 4th axis ..up and down movement.. but it wont help the side to side.. flowcine does have an attachment for that .. The Gravity One.. buts a pretty big bit of gear and wouldn't be practical for that sort of handheld shooting IMHO..

 

TBH I really think its the editor who will totally make or break these type of shoots.. a good editor will make all those shots that really look like quite crappy in rushes !!.. into something great..

Focus puller might be also very important in this one, isn't it?

 

The thing is when I try to operate like this, I can often notice vibration or motion errors on the vertical from walking or running with the camera. How you handle this?

 

all the best

Well for me anyway.. there was no focus puller.. he/she would have no chance really.. running along  holding the camera low by the  handle following a ball.. just go wide.. have some sort of decent DoF.. set focus to 3-4ft.. and run like hell ;)..  if you have Movi and all that stuff you could have a remote FP .. but its a different look.. and the cuts are so quick anyway .. like 1 or 2 seconds only.. they want that movement .. if the shots are longer over crank a bit helps..
