As this is my first ever post on this forum i'd like to first of all kinda say hi and thank all the people involved. This place is extremely interesting and usefull both for amateur filmmakers and pros alike in every aspect.
As for my question i'd like to ask how is it possible to have a deep focus in a scene and move camera around? i mean panning little bit of tracking in an interior scene.
My question comes from watching this great movie of Woody Allen Manhattan Murder Mistery (1993).
A great cinematographer Dante Di Palma choses this hand held kinda guerilla style that makes a perfect choice in my opinion as it goes perfectly with the story,
So in this movie we see scenes in the appartments where there are characters free to move within certain logical range but camera moves at the same time it pans zooms in and out.
basically this is what i would like to know how is this done what kind of lenses etc.
and another question comes from the scene of surveillance. Diane and Woody are in their car while watching something bit far away so camera is on this hotel building away, then it pans to them in the car and everything is in focus this far away hotel and characters which are clearly much closer to the camera. Simple guess is Deep Focusing but how do you move camera in this case?
