I am trying to create a scene where our protagonist is high and we follow him around the streets. I was a really big fan of the way they achived it in the Smashing Pumpkins video for the song 1979.

Does anybody out there know any rigs that can achieve this result. i tried using body mounts and steady cams aimed backwards. the problem is that you see them on the persons shoulders. I am guessing there is some kind of set up which is affixed to the hips and gut. does anyone know how to make one or where to hire one.

Alternatively if anyone knows any cool effective ways of cinematically getting into the heads of characters who on the yellow submarine :blink: then that would be great.

This company has a bodymount: http://doggicam.com/bodymount.php

As for the drug-induced surrealism, you're on your own!

typically the body mount is underneath the clothing so as to not be seen. even the doggiecam system is worn under the clothing.
