shaky shots in NCFOM (9 replies and 6 comments)
In no country i observed that some shots like one below are shaky, how that effect was achieved??
Shakyness is very low, and those shots look real good.
I don't remember seeing any shake. I would have corrected that in the DI if it had been something I did not like. Are you sure it is not your viewing system.
Yes iam sure rest of the movie is fine.
Cheak this shot. And u will notice
There's a difference between shaky cam and handheld. Are you sure you're using the right label?
No its not handheld
If that shot is 'shaky' but it is not out of focus I don't know what the answer is. The shot was definitely not hand held and I remember it being on a dolly with a gear head. I have no answer other than that it is a mistake. One of many I am sure.
I tought it was a technique in directing, cuz i saw similar shaking in some of 'there will be blood' shots too.
And in a montage shot of NCFOM too.
Out of curiosity I just watched that scene. It's available to stream on Netflix. There is a barely perceptible vertical movement on that one shot of the man playing Tommy's father. Wouldn't have noticed it if I wasn't looking for it. Maybe the floor boards were flexing in the wind? Like I said - to me, barely perceptible and on the vertical axis only.
Is it possible that it's film gate weave or jitter?
I expect there might have been some film weave especially it appears on another shot in the opening montage as those shots were locked off. Shows how observant I am!
Dont know why, but to me, that shaky ness delievers story even in a better way, it gives a sense of slight uneasiness, witch was the soul of 'NCFOM', I will suggest all of u guys(including mr. Deakins) to try this effect in upcoming projects.
P.S. :- it give a similar '( i would say' better) effect to the one we see in movie linclon's (2012) that scene, when linclon is in his dream, standing on the board of a ship.
Its in this shot too:-
There is a possibility that these shakes are an artifact from a transfer process. If you like the effect it would be easy to replicate it these days in the DI process.
Yeah i have cheacked on internet
Thank u by the way.
