Java Post Production and Java Post Aerial Photography has done some specialized camerawork on the family movie The Adventure Club, which was shot in and around Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in October, 2015.
For once scene, the objective was to record the movie's three adolescent stars conversing as they rode their bicycles through a park. Java Post Production accomplished the shot by mounting the camera on a DJI Ronin unit, which was then attached to a body mounted Atlas Camera Support worn by a Java Post operator. A second Java Post technician used a wireless remote to operate the camera's pan and tilt controls.
To get the shot, our two Java Post camera operators sat in the back of a pickup truck - no fancy camera vehicles required. This short video shows a test of the system, using a film crew member on a skateboard to simulate the three actors on their bikes. It's an amazing simulation, isn't it? Uncanny, really.
The Adventure Club movie is directed by Geoff Anderson, written by Robin Dunne and Fred Ewanuik, and co-produced by Trilight Entertainment and Montague Entertainment.
