These Were the Devices Used for Camera Moves Back in 1993

Comment

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.”
