Ignite have recently invested in a building built at Plymouth which makes for a great shot. Its called a Letus Helix Jr but to everyone else, it’s a modern day steadicam or gimbal that is small in size and non intrusive.
This sadly expensive but new to market bit of kit allows you to get a steady shot while walking or running or in a car etc.
Here is very short clip of the type of steadicam shot for a shoot at the Oxford University Examination School:
Along with a motorised slider and the crane, it covers most if not all shots commonly used in high end productions bar drone shots. The gimbal is available for hire at £110 per day +VAT. Insurance would need to be bought for the length of the hire of the gimbal.
The temptation to use it generously in every production is present but it should only be used in correlation with whats best for the shoot and the narrative being presented.
Here are some other videos for the Letus Helix Jr gimbal:
