"American Idol Promo", By David Allen Grove

Another promo, shot music video style. Much of the video is shot in low-mode, which seems to echo the laid back and "low" Los Angeles, hip-hop feeling.


Operator's Commentary
This aired during the Results show of American Idol 2006. 3 contestants remain: Tylor Hicks, Katherine McPhee and Elliot Yamin 85-90% Steadicam.

This was shot at the Sea Port Marina and Hotel in Long Beach. Lots and lots of low-mode. Tethered to a video cable. I flew the rig and camera up-side-down. They flipped the image in post. Transition time to go into low mode or high mode was around 15 seconds or so.
