When it comes to male and female roles in the society, there are a lot of stereotypes and a lot of inequality. One of the fields where disparity seems to be largely present is filmmaking, and movie industry in general. Simon Cade of DSLR Guide discusses this topic in his latest video trying to get some answers. Do filmmakers need to be male? And if not – why men are still predominant in this industry?
Recently, we stumbled upon a video that was too good not to share. Made by Luca Amhofer, the video shows a 360-degree rig he made himself for shooting videos. The rig enables a filmmaker to place the subject in the center and rotate the camera around it. And unlike most creations of this kind, this one is inexpensive, yet still efficient.
We got in touch with Luca, and he was kind enough to share some details of his build with us. There are also some BTS images and the video, where you can get acquainted with the process. There’s also the final result, so you get to see what he achieved using this simple and cheap DIY solution.
