got one for you! I'm challenging myself with wanting to achieve a very difficult shot... I'll explain it.
I'm directing and shooting a music video for a friend and I had the vision to start it with a close up of a girl standing. The camera then will start rotating around her until it flies off the sky looking at the valley.
It should be all in one shot with not digital "stitches".
Now I thought to try asking the drone people if it's possible and they say that can only do a small curve around before flying off. They suggested a technocrane instead which is out of budget of course and anyway won't fly over the valley.
The "B" solution to achieve this shot is to use a steadycam around the girl and then stitch a shot from the girl to the sky. Probably the stitch won't be even be visible with the nowadays post technology but it should be tested anyway.
I believe that it would be a breath breaking shot and a great start of the video if all done naturally in one shot.
Any ideas suggestions?
