Burbank, California – The FloatCam HD DC-Slider from Matthews Studio Equipment recently helped Ohio-based cinematographer Jeff Barklage’s commercial shoot for SmartSide (housing siding) far more exciting, thanks to its reach and versatility.
“When you are shooting in stadiums, you aren’t permitted to take dollies out onto the grass,” explained Barklage. “For our Nashville part of the shoot, the location was HALE Stadium at Tennessee State University (TSU). The script required camera movement that was beyond simple lateral slider moves; boom downs, diagonal motions, sweeping past talent, and more.”
