I'm right now in preproduction for a commercial and I was wondering if anyone has some advice for me.
The commercial is going to be one long shot in which the camera "fly's" true a built model-world.
Model size 5-20cm high around 0.5m wide over a distance of 1.5m.
My plan is to have a GFM Secondo Dolly on tracks, parallel to the model. Rig the camera out over the model by using a U-Banig or similar and use a PL-snorkel to get deep into the built world...
Unfortunately we can't afford a remote head or Motion Control.
What are your thoughts. Is it possible to "fly" smooth thru the model "only" by manual dolling, (traveling and boom) and operating on a fluid head?
Further, what Snorkel lens would you recommend?
The cheap one would be the "Periscope Century 2000" with standard lenses. Unfortunately I don't think that even a 1:1 Makro will be close enough...
I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts!
