On Location- "ZEN STRETCH" Fitness Video

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Got a call looking for a Jib Operator/Owner to help shoot a fitness video on ZEN STRETCHING a technique shown by Chris “Bodhi” Batista. I had no idea what I was getting into when I got the gig. Check the link, it’s pretty impressive how this technique can really affect your body.

We shot with 2 cameras covering 10, 20 and 40 minute versions of the video. One camera on our dolly on a longer lens, the other camera our Jib arm with 10′ extension and Remote Head. I monitored the camera movements with the joystick control and video goggles while Tony Del Rio operated the jib arm movements. Constant communication between all three of us was important to ensure that we weren’t shooting similar frames and more importantly so that we weren’t overlapping our zooms to change framing (makes for a happy editor).

Got a great tan hangin’ out on the beach, and got a free instructional from Chris (using Tony as an example) on how to stop an attacker coming at you. Hillarious and scary watching that little demonstration.
