Camera on the Move

Learn Tools & Techniques with SAW Video's Dolly, Crane, & Shoulder Rig!

Trying to get the most professional look for your shoot?  Want to raise the production value of your project? Interested in renting SAW Video’s crane, dolly or new Cameron shoulder rig but not quite sure how to use them to their full potential safely and effectively?

This workshops will highlight some of SAW Video's more advanced production tools to help take your project to the next level.  It will provide camera support for the use of different types of lenses, training for specialized camera movements using a dolly, a crane, a slider, and how to use SAW's new Cameron Shoulder Rig with built-in fallow focus.  Learn to use our Matthew’s Doorway dolly with a track on wheels, level for uneven ground, or create a unique camera move up an incline.  Learn how to use our crane for a smooth bird’s eye view.  And learn the proper set-up for the shoulder rig (it has a lot of pieces, don’t forget where they all go!). This workshop takes place over 2 evenings and will be hands-on with plenty of time to try out different shooting scenarios.
