Selfie film?

Post by Condor68 » Tue Jan 05, 2021 7:46 pm

Not sure if this is correct section but I am missing something regarding how a film was achieved.On BBC4 Winter walks presenters are seen walking along country walks filming themselves.Problem is as they walk the shadow can clearly be seen with a selfie stick but when the presenter is in view the stick is not visible.Even when both hands are in view a stick is not visible ,it does look like they are carrying something in their hand. It says they are using a 360 degree camera which I would have thought would show the stick. Any ideas?

Probably more than one camera...... The selfie filming (which personally I think looks crap) is on one take and other coverage a second camera or even drone footage on a second take.
I expect those walks we’re filmed over several hours or even days. Not just on one take.

Thanks for replying TeeJay I thought about the drone etc but thought it would be too hard to hold position and the stick is clearly shown in shadow at the same time as both hands are in some shots.Will have to try stimulatng grey cells with amber fluid.Probably a bit sad but I have been drawn more to this than the actual walks ,a three or four mile wander through a fairly boring landscape doesnt do a lot for me.

Thanks again

Keith
