Moviemotion Profile Interview
When did you start becoming interested in DSLR videography?
About a year ago, DSLR videography caught our attention. The main reason for that was probably that those pictures were now able to be captured with only a portable camera and a small number of accessories, and there is a large range of creative options to deliver a message to clients, for example creating emotion, impressing or even inspiring others.
What is the best/worst aspect of your job?
Yeah, sure there are some rules, but those won’t shrink our options.
About the worst aspect, there isn't that much that is a negative; perhaps the fact, that we have to work a lot to achieve the goal we are longing for, but those extra hours are the price you have to pay if you really want to be successful in a job you love doing.
Describe the differences/challenges when working on your type of videography?
The major challenge we have to face in the fast-paced world that we live in is that you have to keep convincing clients that professional level film-making is still needed, even though they think that only a budget handycamera is able to get the same result you would usually get if you work with a DSLR.
You often have to explain why the quality of our videos are better, and it is a challenge to justify it.
How do you incorporate the SteadyMaker Stabilizer in your shoots?
This one is easy to answer; we use it in almost every shoot that requires some kind of dynamic movement, since it is really helpful to catch smooth looking pictures or videos.
It also helps a lot, when it comes to stabilizing the camera movement.
Any shooting tips or tricks for using the stabilizer?
Learn how to walk in duck-like steps, train it → improve it! 😉
(Editors' note - we have a tutorial video talking about how to move with the stabilizer...check it out HERE)
What do you hope to achieve in the future?
We want to create movies that change our society and the whole world making it a better place to live in, by moving each and every person to maybe want them to become a better person or inspire them to do something bigger.
