I have been trying to find a company or crane/steadicam model that is able to transition smoothly from a crane to a steadicam operator/rig.
I have a big shoot coming up and need to know if I need something made. We will need a motorized pan/tilt hot head on a 50' ish crane for a few moves before we go to steadicam - either that or an operator on the crane...
I really need help and am depending on some of you more experienced DP's to have some ideas and solutions. Thanks so much - I know there must be some way to do this, or someone who has done it before.
I have watched all the on-shots such as boogie nights, etc. and understand I may need an operator on the crane, which would work as well.
Money is not an issue. I have been given an unlimited budget for whatever I need. Please help! me with any information on rigs, cranes, customized equipment, etc.
