What gear should i bring. What settings should i shoot on. The delicate balance of finding the right camera movement energy and tone to bring to the scene. Anyone familiar with NoFilmSchool knows the importance of these. The camera is telling a story whether you want it to or not, via how its placed, what it is doing, what it is looking at and how it moves. Finding the right way to move within a production can range from easy pre-planned tones and storyboards, to very complex. Not necessarily because of the grip stuff involved, because of the uncertainty of the emotion you're looking for. Gut feelings are a lot of the time what make you talented. Lately I've been playing with various electroninc gimbals, flying Steadicams, rocking Easyrigs and piloting drones.
