I built my “flying” camera rig today. It will be used in the “Combat” music video.
I’m still trying to get the airplane to hold its position on the wire extension. It was built with some scrap wood, shelf brackets, a gooseneck mic mount and clip, and an old tripod head (pilfered from my animation stand).
I had countless spaceships and airplane toys when I was a kid. Now I’m getting a chance to make one fly. It feels pretty good.
I like the fact that the handles grip like pilot controls. I basically fly the plane VERY SLOWLY and shoot a single frame at a time.
I’ll also try and shoot some video with my HV-20 and see how it looks in 24p.
