Have a gig coming up that calls for a 2 non stop 30 second straight shots with talent addressing camera. 

 

One of those shots has to land on a screen full of a blue print that will be sitting on a table for animators. 

 

I am hesitant to use a gimbal as the person speaking is the head of a large company and I've been advised "He doesn't like doing many takes"

 

However we will be on location in an office building with 2 person sized hallways that we have to maneuver through and I don't have much experience with working with a dolly team to be confident in saying if that is possible or not or what dolly would be the best choice. (I am only really familiar with matthews and fisher).

 

Should I gimbal it or Dolly it?

 

What dolly would be best for the situation if so?

Also should I look to finding a dolly grip and go by his lead for that need or a key grip and dolly grip?
