Short Film Embraces Artemis Handheld

News Image
Cinematographer Danna Kinsky has been speaking out about shooting the short film 'The Aerial Girl' on Canon 7D using the artemis handheld camera stabilizer system from Sachtler.
Kinsky said: “Pairing the lightweight camera with the artemis handheld allowed us to move quickly and keep the audience in the moment.”
The twelve minute-long film tells the story of Tailor, a cool urban teen. Her life is uprooted when her father dies and she moves to her grandfather’s ranch with her mother. There she meets Carl, a ranch hand, who turns her life upside down.
Kinsky discovered the range of artemis camera stabilizer systems while attending an artemis workshop in Los Angeles last November. “I found artemis to be better than other stabilizer systems I have worked with in the past,” she explained. “As a woman, the vests of the other rig brands never quite fit me. In testing the artemis rigs and vests, I found the smaller size of the artemis DV Pro to be a better fit, which makes for better stabilization and makes me a better operator. When 'The Aerial Girl' project came up, I knew the artemis handheld would help me capture the story the way we wanted,” she added. “Curt O. Schaller and the people at Sachtler set up a practice session for me, so I could master all of artemis’ capabilities. After three hours, I felt comfortable with the system in hand.”
Kinsky continued: “On the day of the shoot, after a few takes, the director and producers were pleased with the results. There were a few very specific shots that I could never have accomplished without artemis.”
Anna Simone Scott added: “As the director of 'The Aerial Girl', beautifully shot by Danna Kinsky, I found her use of the artemis handheld to be most evocative in one scene, as it created a feeling of the pivotal character moving large towards the frame which was perfect for that scene.”
