Filming in an airport?
I put out one edit every year, and have been doing so for the last 3 years. Nothing super professional, just something I enjoy doing. This year I went to the French Alps, and so I was thinking for the opening portion of the edit I would use some cinematics from the airport.At the time I didn't film anything, but I'm leaving the country in a couple days and was considering doing the filming then. I was wondering if anyone had done this before and could recommend some cool shots? I need about 4 shots to fill 20 seconds of intro if anyone has any suggestions that would be awesome.
I have a t4i with a tokina 12-24 f4, and a flycam (glidecam knockoff that was much cheaper and works well for what i need it for). Also for those that care it will be in the Edmonton International airport, and will all be a general theme of leaving (I have footage from getting there)
this is one place where dslr's shine. They allow great footage without a huge kit, so you can avoid drawing attention to yourself. Just keep the camera on a strap around your neck. You can use this to help stabilize it if you keep tension in the strap. Then just take videos of whatever you want as long as it isn't the TSA/security zone. A guy did this a few years ago in north korea, so you should be fine. Just don't get the glide cam or a large mic out, that tends to draw a lot of unneeded/unwanted attention. Are there any specific things you wanted to shoot?
