For a narrative film I ponder to replace a dolly with a specific slider that is ultra smooth and can be used for push ins / pull outs, as the length increases/decreases while the slider moves. (this one: https://www.zeapon.com/en/micro3-series-double-distance-slider/ )
But the camera travel distance is only 1 meter / 3 feet.
I think it could work, as the film is a slow burner, these short, slow moves would fit the mystery/thriller/horror plot and it would have many benefits keeping the crew small and agile (there also is a steadicam ready to create much longer moving shots to break the rhythm as needed). But I would love to see how it works in a movie.
Does anyone know films (or cinematographers/directors) that make lots of use of very short, very slow push ins / pull outs?
