Ive seen people follow steadicam or dolly with nets before and I'm wondering what its used for. I saw guys with burlap panels flanking the operator in Full Metal Jacket on a BTS and I felt like that was for protection because of the dirt and debris flying through the air. Is this for the same thing?

 

Thanks!

Nets are often used as a windbreak for steadicam

Though I'm highly exaggerating, think of a camera on a Steadicam like a plate being balanced on top of a stick... It's a lot easier to keep it steady if there isn't wind blowing on it.
