If you’re looking for a super smooth tracking shot on the roughest terrain, you may want to look into Glidecam. As a prime example of its capabilities, check out this breathtaking nature footage seen above.
Glidecam was created by Martin Stevens while producing and directing his first feature film. Stevens wanted to create a more affordable and capable camera stabilizer for his own productions, using what he now refers to as “a common sense approach.”
Since creating his first prototype in 1991, “Glidecam has become the world leader in its field because it combines the best practices with the best thinking, and in the end it is this combination that the customer wants.”
