    Vinny Minton Effect

    Obviously, we've all witnessed the praise Vinny Minton got for his Bittercold Pre Comp edit. The unique application of the Glidecam mount; his control and command of the rig was dope. It was very similar to the way Dave Paine covered the X Games, especially Bruno Lowe's runs.

    Question: Can we claim this cinematographic technique as a blading innovation? How long til Skateboarding adopts this? What are the boundaries? Could Vinny carry this:

    i was shooting some shots in this edit on steady with the HVX200
    for some of the following shots i had to mount it upside down...

    but its pretty hard. And its ok for park edits and stuff where you can plan and have time and absolutely not for shoot'n run situations in the daily streetskating.

                  all you need is a pair of speed skates.

                  no glidecam. just speedskates.

                    i bet that would help a ton. just the difference between skating flat and anti has a pretty dramatic effect on follow cam shots.

                      im not sure if you're just talking about the glidecam, or if you're talking about the way he used multiple people in each shot. either way skateboarding has done it before him

                      incredible use of revealing one thing at a time filming doubles skating:

                      and the same edit, but different cameras, also great revealing here:
                      http://vimeo.com/6200582
                      (no glidecam in those edits, but there are dolly shots that give a similar effect)

                      a great use of the glidecam outside of skating

                        I feel like its easier to stabilize shots on blades over more unpredictable ground. I was watching Vinny's Imperial wedding videos, there's this one shot where the camera tracks down stairs to focus on the couple. Here:

                        @3.56s

                        Not sure how you would achieve that on a skateboard.

                          absolutely, and we can do things on skates without a steadycam that skateboarders would need to just get off their boards and run with a steadycam.

                          this clip is another good example. camera barely shook at all while jumping the grass gap.

                              haha

                              thx sadi

                              that was with the HVX200. Handheld so much smoother without rolling shutter.


                              http://vimeo.com/7893436 <-- 5Dmk2 all handheld or tripod

                              its ok for park where the ground is smooth and stuff

                                  They used a skateboard and steady cam for Slumdog Millionaire, this time going up stairs...
