    Invented by Garrett Brown in the early 70's, the steadicam shot -- or 'steadishot' -- has become one of the most dynamic and exciting forms of cinematography and is one of the most engaging visual techniques in a filmmaker's storytelling arsenal. I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of "top" clips over at www.steadishots.org, which are rated by the community. After locating what sources I could from the top 50 or so, I decided to stick with the order presented on the site (accurate as of March 1, 2013). While I do hope you enjoy my video, there are many other clips that I was not able to source as well as many great clips that have yet to be rated into the "top" ranks, so please head over to www.steadishots.org and show your appreciation for the great service they provide.

          In this video I talk about creating the popular low poly look in Cinema 4D. My approach this time was to do a time-lapse of an actual creation then to add a voice over on top. I hope this works for all of you. If you have any questions feel free to drop them below or hit me up on twitter @samwelkertv. Disclaimer: I did get my wisdom teeth out earlier in the week and I am still a little out of it as a result. If you can't handle that, I apologize. Looking for inspiration? I've put together some links on my blog post pointing you to some good artists around the web: http://wp.me/p1PALB-7L

                  • Children of Men - every shot 45 seconds or longer

                    It was recently revealed that Alfonso Cuaron's upcoming film, "Gravity", will not only have a 17+ minute opening long take, but also an ASL (average shot length) of 45 seconds. Having been a fan of his previous films, I revisited my favorite one to see just what that type of shot looked and felt like. I had seen the film a few times before, and couldn't recall more than handful of shots that I thought would work. I was shocked to find there were 16 of them -- heck, there are 6 longer than 90 seconds! They are used in a variety of situations, and to great effect. It was easy to see how I could forget there were so many, as each one simply pulled you further into the story. It made me so excited for 'Gravity' that I felt I just had to share with anyone else who would be interested. Some other stats: 62 shots > 22 seconds ("half of 45", my original criteria) 39 shots > 30 seconds 24 shots > 40 seconds 16 shots > 45 seconds 6 shots > 90 seconds Obviously, you should see the film if you haven't already. My point in doing this is to demonstrate the effect of a long take in a variety of narrative uses, and to give an idea of what a 45+ second shot looks and feels like when directed by Alfonso Cuaron. I hope you enjoy! www.refocusedmedia.com twitter.com/refocusedmedia facebook.com/refocusedmedia
