The advantages and skills of using the camera crane in film and television photography

In the era of rapid change of television technology, camera crane technology has played an important role in variety, sports, conversation and other programs. It greatly enriches the lens language of the TV program, increases the motion and diversity of the lens, adds momentum and depth of space to the lens, and makes the audience feel the feeling of the scene; and, because of the unique long arm advantage of the camera crane, it is often able to capture the lens that other cameras can't capture. . First, the basic knowledge of rocker shooting technology. The rocker arm of a camera is divided into many kinds, which are generally classified according to movie application and TV application. The rocker arm of the movie is more technical than the TV rocker arm, and at the same time the price should be much higher than that of the rocker arm. However, the variety is relatively small. And because of the rich type of TV program, there are more kinds of rocker types used in TV, which can be divided into three kinds, with seats, all remote control and all manual. The arm has the function of contraction of the arm rod. At present, the main TV rocker in the world is mainly: the Movietech large rocker in Germany, the large rocker arm of ABC in Germany, the large rocker arm of Jimmy Jib in the United States, the rocker arm of the British Polecat fishing rod, and the small rocker of Power Jib. Considering that the volume and weight of the general rocker equipment are large, the installation of the rocker arm must be based on safety, and the installation should be carried out in an orderly manner in the case of safety; if installed outdoors, it should be taken into consideration: if installed on the road, attention should be paid to pedestrians and vehicles, if installed on the top of the building, Attention should be paid to the effect of wind on the safety of the equipment. The general rocker arm is more than 7 meters long. If it is installed on the cruise ship, we should pay attention to the unsafe factors caused by the swaying of the ship. If it is installed in the field, we should pay attention to the hardness of the foundation. According to the different terrain, it can be flexibly chosen to load the gun wheel or not to carry the wheel, and it is directly supported by the tripod. When the rocker arm is set up, we should check the level and dynamic balance of each part of the rocker arm, confirm the installation of the camera and adjust the level and dynamic balance of the camera in time; then drag it to the director's position and lock the rocker arm so that the installation process will be completed. For our country, the application of rocker arm technology is relatively late, and the relative technical application level is also backward, so there are many misuse misunderstandings in China, mainly:. In the actual application, it is usually operated by a single person, but from the security point of view, two people should operate the camera crane at the same time, one of them control the direction and the direction. Position and guarantee the safety of the camera, another person controls the operation handle, ensures the quality of the picture. Often the director and the camera craneman have insufficient communication, which leads to the untacit agreement and the inconsistency of the lens. Although the type of TV program is rich, the model of the rocker arm used is too single to affect the lens painting. The expressiveness of the plane, due to the lack of staffing and safety measures, the unnecessary damage to the rocker arm is more common. The rocker arm function failed to fully play two. The application of the camera crane in the film and television photography depends largely on the communication between the camera and the director. . Before the program is recorded, the camera crane personnel must communicate fully with the director on the program recording process and be familiar with the content of the recording program in advance. In the design of the program recording, the rocker arm lens is needed to make the camera crane technology play the best role. For the large TV programs or live programs recorded in the studio, it is also necessary to rehearse the use of all the shots as far as possible during the rehearsal process. 1. The application of the camera crane technology in the concert program is now, in the general concert, two camera cranes are often used, one is placed in front of the platform, mainly for the singer on the stage, and the other mainly takes the scene of the audience to respond to the lens. In order to make the best shots of the singers on the platform to the greatest extent, the position of the rocker arm equipment should be as close to the platform as possible and put on the two sides of the main platform as much as possible; and the rocker arm can break through the limitations of the camera in this case, and can capture the wonderful moments of the present performance staff in a full range.
