GREAT review of the new movie "Battle: Los Angeles" by Matt Zoller Seitz at Salon.com, taking the filmmakers to task for the evil combination of long zoom, short depth of field, and lack of shot stability that equates to nausea for the viewers. Huzzah! Huzzah! Something that has needed to be said for over a decade!
Will it make a difference? Doubtful. You see as many faux-Steadicams as decent tripods at NAB, a travesty I expect to continue next month. Anybody want to lay odds?
And no, I haven't yet seen "Battle: Los Angeles," but once it hits the Roku I promise to pop a few Dramamine and give it a go.
