Did a Shoot with A Young Choreographer by the Name of Queen Tut. To be so young, Tut has the drive of Lion, she suffers from certain ailments but has not let that stop her, she still performs, teaches, and has time to mentor children at a Brooklyn Community Center..We are featuring her in Our Documentary..The other day was her Birthday, So this was my present to her..
So I finally tested my new glidetrack hybrid…I went to Coney Island one beautiful day and to say the least I LOVE IT.. We decided to go to Coney Island located in Brooklyn New York for its various landscapes, and wide spectrum of people… Soooo Armed with the GTH, Panasonic TM 900, and a couple of Light Stands..We were ready for anything..
Out the box, The GT was very easy to assemble, the track seemed durable, clean, and the bearings on the mount were gliding fast by just tilting this bad boy in any position on the track…Hoping to encounter the unexpected, our first attempt to using it was just that.. Standing in front of an abandon Roller Rink on the Board Walk, Lens set to it’s widest position and it was dolly time…NOT!!!! Rule #1, having the 1m GT, if your subject is Bigger than said length, and lens is at it’s widest point, little to no movement will occur…That’s the only real rule besides making sure that in all your fun: do not get the Dolly IN the shot.
The GT Hybrid was able to shoot Horizontally and Vertically, in fact the only shot that we didn’t try was a Overhead Dolly. I would honestly recommend this product to anyone looking to step up their production value.. Easy to use, Light weight, and you are limited basically to your imagination. Those lil tilts and pans will add to any shot, which in the long run means more business, a happier client, and a more Creative You..Enjoy..
One Night, me and business partner went to DUMBO to test some New Equipment we purchased..We thought it was a clear enough night just to get some nice scenic shots..Boy we were in for a FIERY SURPRISE.. We meet a woman there by the name of Phoenix Feeley, who got together with her group once a month to Fire Dance..I mean really who Knew the Last Air Bender was Real…I believe it was Grace Under Fire..Kudos to the Hoops, Batons, and Chains that have given their life in the process…Check it out!!!
