Here’s an interesting little video showing the various camera rigs that were used to shoot movie scenes back in 1993, from steadicams to RC helicopters.
Los Angeles-based director and cinematographer Paul Raimondi helped create the video, a short theater trailer, for the Los Angeles Times. The goal was to offer a look at the devices that were used to move the camera in interesting ways.
“No way to get the shot? Not a problem,” says actor Jean-Claude Van Damme. “With machines like these, we can move the camera in new and even more exciting ways.”
