Kathy’s Convertible Shoe

I teamed up with Todd Dayton to film this Kickstarter product video. If you plan on filming in a park, as we did, you’ll want to check about permits. Even if you’re running around handheld, security may still ask you to leave. Luckily, we were able to finish up on the sidewalk using public property. You do necessarily need a permit to film on public property. As long as you aren’t blocking off the sidewalk, you should be fine.

We shot this with a C100 and a Glidecam. The whole idea of the shoe is that it’s ideal for traveling so I wanted to incorporate a lot of movement into the storytelling. If I had to do it again, I think I would use a Movi or Ronin 3-axis gimbal. They take more time to setup but they get a much more stable shot.
