Using a Cineslider for Push / Pull Moves 1

If you’re new to shooting video, like a lot of DLSR guys these days, there’s lots to catch up on.  Making use of a dolly to add smooth motion to your shots is a no-brainer but the technique isn’t as simple as it looks.

Preston Kanak from 3 Minute Shorts has put together a nice little explanation of how he uses the Kessler Cineslider to create dynamic short films.  Preston not only explains the techniques he uses, but how to overcome some of the common hurdles you’ll encounter (like having the track in the shot).  I also couldn’t help but recognize the landmarks, landscape and architecture he was shooting … from a province dear to my heart, Saskatchewan 🙂 nice!
