I'm curious to find out if this is a camera rig or camera movement that makes this effect or if it is a effect that is created in post.

The first time I saw this was in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011). The scene where the characters are running through the forest away from bullets and explosions. The shots are a profile of the characters and the camera is tracking with them. I know that it is speed ramped but the most interesting part is that when the characters jump over fallen trees and dodge things the camera stays fixed on there head.

Then the other day I saw another use of this movement in this music video.



At 2:40 you can see what i am talking about. The three people are "snap walking"? down a hallway. They bounce up and down and the camera bounces with them fixed on the head.

Does anybody have any idea how this is done? I would really like to recreate it sometime.

Thanks!

2D camera tracking + stabilisation

shoot wide to cover for the worst of the offset...

Nuke, Flame/Smoke, AE etc.

(with those few terms, google is now your friend again)

This was my first thought but i thought I might not be because in Sherlock Holmes the camera was shooting the character from a profile and seemed a little far away for a Snorricam, but I could be wrong.
