Time : Setting a track trolley and tripod needs time and space.
Cost : Once you give a miss to the tripod, track, trolley and jib, you
save lots of money due to savings on costs of attendants, technicians,
production vehicles, etc. Indirect savings include decreased conveyance,
stay and food of the manpower.
Nimble is faster : A smaller crew is always nimble. Fewer heads, fewer confusions, higher efficiency
Effect : Shooting handheld gives a new feel. When we see the Tv series ‘24’ or the Bourne Series, we get the fast paced feel. A lot of that is shot handheld.
Less Intrusions : Often Police & security guards don’t interfere when you shoot handheld.
More convenient in weddings, offices, travel shoots etc
While shooting weddings and city offices setting a tripod is not always possible. Tracks could damage the furniture or inconvenience the people around.
Shoot Professionally without a Track & a Tripod
Shooting handheld can be tricky and can make the work look amateurish.
