There was a time, not that long ago, when gimbals were damn-near the pinnacle of videography and were seen almost exclusively on film sets. Now, almost every videographer or content creator has at least one for every camera, including their phones. It is the familiar trajectory of technology: when it's new, it's exclusive and expensive, but over time, it becomes accessible and affordable. However, I'm still constantly surprised at what can be done these days in your own back garden.
In this video, MAKE. ART. NOW. sets up an orbital shot in his garden with a telephoto lens to create shots you would usually only see in cinematography. In fact, this shot is so difficult to stabilize and pull off, you wouldn't see it all that often in high-end productions either. There are several shots in this video that are truly superb, including the one of the drone which could easily be an advert for it.
What elements that are exclusive to big-budget film sets do you think will be in the hands of consumers in the near future?
