Made this experimental short this past week.

 

 

It starts getting shakier in the second half. Shooting on a Sony F900 rig weighing in at about 26 pounds.

 

Should I be getting a steadicam? rails? Any stabilization suggestions welcome.

 

Also given the forum category, other criticism welcome.

Thanks.

Hi Macks,

 

Not sure which parts your asking about stabilization.  I think theres a few different routes you could go.  The movement needs to my eye dont seem terribly strenuous.  Maybe just some sliders as he walking around?  The locked off shots could easily use a tripod.  If your wanting to be more fluid than that, maybe an easyrig to shoot those scenes handheld?
