Vimeo shows you how a vehicle can be used for a variety of shots, replacing dollies and the need for expensive equipment.

THIS TUTORIAL by Vimeo packs so much info into three minutes it’s worth breaking out the sections in a list:

  • Tracking shot (shooting out of trunk, following subject)
  • Chasing shot (camera mounted out window facing forward)
  • Side dolly shot (camera mounted out window facing sideways)
  • Slow push (shooting out of trunk, approaching subject)
  • Circling shot (putting car in neutral and pushing around subject)
  • “Helicopter” effect (driving shooting from overpass)
  • “Out of body” effect (subject filmed on hood with car moving)
  • Bird’s eye view (static, using roof of vehicle)
  • Driving shot (use backseat, keeping hands out of frame)
  • “Thrown out of car” effect (splicing two different scenes)

What tricks have you used for mounting cameras in-vehicle or using a car to film in creative ways? Interested in working one on one with Matador producers? Consider the travel filmmaking program at MatadorU.

    I'm sorry, but in my opinion, you are wrong. Write to me in PM, it talks to you.

    But all the same, without Herbalife Cosmetics again, there is no way to go.
