The Small Monty
"The Small Monty", By Doug Walshe
'The Small Monty' was a test shot for a feature, using a tight, slow frame and a subtle jib to begin, then switching into Don-juan to get down a flight of stairs and finnally ending in a wide tracking shot. Suspense was the main feeling we were trying to convey.

As a fairly new op (1 year), it's all about trying to do everything, and everything well.
For me, I am pleased with the shot, the staircase is smooth, switching into it was nice, switching out at the bottom was a little tricky and there is a slight hicup on the horizons.
The performance from the actor were quick than slow and quite jagged as he was in 'pain'- this proved tough to keep him central in frame while keeping the shot smooth, so I planned a route that i would stick to and pan to adapt/keep him in frame.
Watch this space!
Best of luck to all Steadi newbies.
