Steadicam work on Morat, Juanes – “Besos En Guerra” Music Video in Miami
It was Great to team up again with director Lui from @luivilleandcompany and Cinematographer Lucho on this video. We had none other than El Maestro @JUANES as a featured artist on MORAT’s new track “Besos En Guerra”. Honestly, when I got the call and heard Juanes was involve, I was in! not realizing the job called for a Movi or Ronin operator in Miami. I don’t like those gymbals, I simply don’t like the feel of them and preferred to bid for the job with a classic MASTER SERIES STEADICAM and a Letus Helix Jr (w/ encoded motors) in combination with a CineGears Wireless Follow focus. Flying a Red Epic W 8K is not particular challenging but when the idea of using Cooke S4 was floating around, I became confident the job will go to a Steadicam operator and not a kid with a Gymbal.
Our shooting day turned into a rainy windy day just a few hrs into the job. without a Beltz Wave or an AR or Trinity or even a Gyro, operating in Miami’s wind is debilitating. Fortunately, I had Gaffer Rafa Puentes and his crew holding 4×4 nets around me to at least give me a fighting chance. 1 AC Max did an outstanding job as usual.
We also had a CamTram Dolly/Slider that Cinematographer Lucho and Director Lui became fond of during the bands wide shots. all in all, I enjoyed sweating through a few shirts and watching this guys perform and sign their hearts out.
When you see the video, also appreciate the fantastic Cinematography that the Spaniard crew did. for the story scenes on the video.
