Next month I am going to shoot a lot of boat stuff around Malta for a german comedy movie. I´ve been on water before, but we would like to get really stable shots this time, because it´s 1:2,35 and for the big screen.
So far I have found two options for stabilizing the camera on boats:
- Libra- or Scorpio-Remoteheads with electronic gyro stabilization
- a gyro mount called Gyro-Pro by Peace River Productions (or the gyro mount mako-head)
A remote is pretty expensive because it comes with at least one operator and I like to avoid cables and electronics if not neccesary (especially on water).
The Gyro-Pro seems fine for me, but it´s not so easy to get to Europe and I guess there are not many units available anyway. (The rental is working on it.)
So does anybody know other ways of shooting boat to boat stuff?
Thanks for your replies!
