We produce a weekly home improvement television show where our studio is the construction site - not exactly the optimal shooting environment. In most cases the terrain is rocky and uneven with bumps, dips, even shallow holes not to mention other obstacles & hazards such as scrap piles, stacks of lumber .
Shooting in such conditions was challenging to say the least. Dolly shots are impractical and a smooth and steady shoulder mount shot nearly impossible.
After some debate, we decided to investigate the feasibility of a camera stabilization platform. Much to our dismay, we found that the available platforms were far too expensive or lacked the features that we needed for a truly professional look - that is until we came across the Glidecam.
With the Glidecam we found a complete line of products & accessories to suit our needs and a knowledgeable staff to answer our many questions. We eventually decided on the V-16 package.
I can say with all confidence, this was one of the best decisions we have made. The Glidecam offers the flexibility and versatility we needed under less than ideal shooting conditions.
Glide cam has enabled us to produce a high quality program with an extremely affordable investment while offering the durability needed for a weekly shooting schedule. I would recommend the Glidecam to anyone looking to improve the quality of their production without having to break the bank.
