Camera movement conveys anything from the emotions of characters to the way you want your audience to perceive a particular scene. In How To Be a MōVI Gimbal Tech, we examine Freefly Systems MōVI and how it has changed the way we conceptualize shots and blocking.
Audiences and their expectations are constantly evolving, and how quickly we capture moving shots matters. MōVI operator Chris Herr is a premiere MōVI Gimbal operator recognized worldwide and also an integral part of Shane Hurlbut’s team. He ensures that all MōVI shots are spot-on for feature films, TV shows, and commercials.
In this beginner course, you’ll become familiar with gimbals and how to balance and configure them. Chris shows you how he builds and operates the MōVI M5, M10, and M15 with different cameras. Then, he breaks down how he adjusts his MōVI to handle Majestic mode and change values on the fly for complex shots that require subtle movement and extreme action. Chris reveals what tools he uses and shares his own set of experiences so you can use the MōVI to take your own shots to the next level.
