… Brandon got famous, two years ago, with his 'Hong Kong Strong' movie, and just added Seoul to his list of 'travel movies'…


… another head spinning piece of awesomeness in gimbal work and invisible transitions …

But, … on this board perhaps of bigger interest:
there's a Directors Commentary/BTS video (more in the YT commentary)


… where Brandon not just talks about hardware, but shares some insights about content-finding and concept-making - for me very interesting.

And, he's announcing some film-school project …
unscripted.com
(one of this cases, I'm surprised THAT URL wasn't already grabbed by someone??)

btw: that cam-move at 3:35 is insane, isn't it?? That is in-camera, not CGI....

…now, I only have to find out, how he makes himself invisible (3:50 or 5:25 should show his reflection) … hmm? :blink:

Love that shot at 3:35! Like a drone shot, a dolly shot, and a gimbal shot all rolled into one. I notice he seems to defy the tripod concept, and I like how he does it. He seems free to move in space. I guess that's the new shooting style with all the high tech gear these days. I'm using a Zhiyun Crane with a GH4 and finding I can get a lot of shots I used to never think about. Love his style. Thanks for posting this!

I hear young video shooters talking about breaking rules. Well, if you mindlessly break rules, you get crap. Don't break a rule of filmmaking/editing unless you're trying to achieve a specific goal. It's called inspiration.

He's very talented.
