And that is a hell of a camera move. Did you invent it? If so you should mention it, because it is about to be sto-o-len.

The idea came from The Raid 2's car chase


Ours, however, was no where near as complicated. We just invested money in a DJI Osmo+


All we did was pass the camera to the backseat actor, and then passed it to another person afterwards.

Very cool.
Here's a tamer halfway version done by a guy named Marty in 1963. Go to 1:15

I'm a firm believer of working with what you have, but we never had a steadicam of any sorts, so getting the DJI Osmo has opened up a whole new world for us. Especially now that the DJI is practically a mini Ronin. Sucks in low light, but it is an amazing alternative.

It's also cool seeing old ideas being reinvented with modern technology.

Thanks for checking out our short!
