Theres a effect I really like but not sure how to achieve it. When the subject is moving it feels like the camera is attached to their body facing them and moves with them.

In the chorus of this song they've used this effect.



This song also uses it. Like you can see at 2:22secs



I'd love to know what its called and how it is achieved:)

Thanks

Oh cool, so its just a steadicam facing yourself? I love that effect. How do you hide the body suit? and how do you stop the arm from moving around. is there a way to lock it?

I guess you just put a piece of clothing over the vest?

It's not (usually) an actual steadicam, it's just a harness worn by the talent with a camera mount on it.

Yeh, I'm with 2D tracking only on this one ...

The first vid even goes so far as to show you they have keyed out at least the artists eyes which could be used as tracking points.

With a body rig the talent is still free to move their head around with respect to their body.
