Fig Rig filming project
This week in stead of starting school I am out planning and doing some filming for a project we are doing. It relates to mental health training and we are filming a homeless guy surviving on the streets of Hamilton this Friday. I have been loaded a Fig Rig today - it's a kind of steadycam device. The inventor, Mike Figgis has come up with a simple, cheap, effective way to mimic steadycam operation so we can film smoothly as we follow our character around from place to place as he goes about his business.
Maybe some of you will design innovative solutions to problems you com eup against in your creative endeavours :-)
