Inspiration can come from many avenues, not just people. Yesterday a friend shared a clip with me that has been making its way across the web for a couple of days now from the movie Hugo 3D. The clip is at the end of the film. It shows a behind-the-scenes look at one of the coolest shots in the movie- a one long take steadicam shot that moves through two rooms and shows all the characters.
This inspired me because it allowed me to see the inner-workings of a shot like this from lighting, boom operating, actors hitting their cues and marks, set building, and moveable walls.
Sometimes seeing how a big budget movie films something can allow you to get ideas of how you could do something, or maybe it will give you an even better idea! Who knows, maybe you could even figure out how to do the same thing but cheaper or more efficient.
I wanted to share the clip with you guys in hopes that it will inspire you not only to learn how the pros do it but maybe it will spark some original, creative ideas as well. Below is a behind-the-scenes clip of an awesome two minute steadicam shot from Hugo 3D:
