Chief Productions have been shooting with the bike rickshaw on the latest TV ad for Kleenex’s upcoming winter campaign. DP James Watson and Director Nate Camponi used the rickshaw for several tracking shots of a cyclist and football players.
The Step on rickshaw has been out with the crew from UFA Fiction’s drama series “Valley Of The Fox” currently shooting in N.Wales. The Steadicam was hard mounted to it in low mode for tracking shots of a cyclist along Llandudno promenade.
Steadicam op. Joe Bullen and the crew from Emu Films in Manchester have been shooting the latest New Balance commercial at Liverpool FC. They used the step on rickshaw plus seat to capture dramatic low angle tracking shots across the pitch.
Joe hard mounted his under slung rig to the deck and fitted the balloon wheels to smooth out the ride and protect the turf.
I have recently been shooting Steadicam on feature “Tell It To The Bees” currently filming in Scotland. The step on rickshaw was used extensively for fast tracking shots with a hard and soft mounted Steadicam as well as for hand held work.
The crew on the N. West based movie “Northern Soul” have been shooting with the rickshaw in and around Manchester this week.
