Having the camera on the move makes for a dynamic shot and there are lots of different ways to do it and one of the smoothest tools to use is a slider.
Sliders move the camera on a horizontal plane. Forward moves take the viewer towards the action, moves backwards take the viewer away from the action to reveal the scene and sideways moves add motion to follow action.
Combining these moves with a tripod head move at the same time can create some very inspiring movements that will hold your audiences attention and draw them into the emotion and story of your film.
We have one of the best sliders available: The Glidecam Vistatrack 200-48.
This heavy duty professional slider is capable of taking up to 200lbs (90kg) in weight, has a 100mm bowl for mounting a tripod head, includes built-in folding adjustable legs and is light enough to carry in a single hand.
This is one of the most popular pieces of grip equipment that we hire out and we try to use it every time we film as it always makes for some fantastic shots.
