Tracking Shots Are Hard

I’ve done tracking shots with Dollies and Jibs in the past but never was one as hard as this. We flew through a pillar and picked up the actors on the other side, then while they had a slight argument the boom had to flip from below them to above them, all while hiding from the camera. From here things got complicated and I’m not even going to try explaining. Next time I’m allowing 3 hours min. for any potential tracking shot. Anyway I’m tired now.

Peace.

Eric
