My first little CamDolly shoot

I had a small little shoot the other day for Stefan Rudnicki and Gabrielle De Cuir, a very interesting interview and roundtable discussion with esteemed author Orson Scott Card for the nice people at Macmillan Audio.  Stefan and Gabrielle produce some great audio books and the discussion, which included three other actors as well, was centered around the upcoming production in Orson’s Ender’s Game series.  It was very interesting to hear the authors thoughts on the audible versions of his work, as well as the actors thoughts on his written word, and I strongly recommend checking the material out when it’s released.

The roundtable was a simple 3-camera shoot and my new CamDolly came in very handy, lending some energy to the wide shot.  A few stacks of books in the foreground, some slight lateral movement and voila, the shot came alive.
