Re: A cruising video I shot in BVI and Puerto Rico

Thank you for posting, Matt; great work!

I've been making television commercials and sponsored films for a living for several decades and I judge your work to be first rate; you've learned in a short time how to produce professional results.

I especially like your compositions and story-telling.

One note; you are quite right about avoiding zooms, the kind we call, "naked," where the camera is stationary, but you can get make a zoom invisible by panning/tilting at the same time during the zoom. This way you can, for example, go from a wide shot to something tighter without a cut and the audience will see it as transparent. Certainly not something to be over used, but can be very effective. I would guess that I use this in only a few of my projects, so it's something to keep in the bottom of the bag of tricks.

I remember getting my first zoom lens for my little Arriflex S and ruined a day's shooting with the vertigo inducing zooms! I guess it's true that experience keeps a dear school but a fool will learn in no other!


Fair winds and good shooting!
