Was asked to film (video) the wedding of a (distant) family member last year.
Just got around to actually editting it (don't ask, long story involving words like doctors, depression, slump, proffessional help and the likes....)
Cameras locked down for the most part on decent tripods. However, the walking around and candid stuff just leaves plenty to be desired.
I do have a glidecam and the trimmings but being present as 'Uncle Alan' and the timescales involved it's just not practical to be trying to put the harness on and off again at regular intervals.
I think if I was to ask payment I'd have to buy something like a steadicam merlin - small , light and does the job without looking like something off a large movie set. Or maybe for some simple hand-held shots I just need more practice.
So then, some of the shots I would prefer not to use but the 'story' simply needs them. Shame really.
Oh well. At least I'm there as 'Uncle Alan' before being there as the video guy.
