When is a Crane - a Dolly?

April 10, 2015

When it's a technocrane.  A close friend of mine owns a few and says they are used just as often for horizontal moves as vertical or a combination of the two.  This is a shot from a set we were on together were the "dolly move" was from above the east river into an actor standing on the bank.  Not too many other ways of getting a shot like that this easily.  It was too windy for a drone and that's not a device I'd want to hang an Alexa from, above the East River.  But it all went well.  This was our first day of a week of shooting NYC locations for a major Chinese motion picture called Mojin - The Lost Legend.
