cameragod is on a distinguished road

To me its more about lighting. Get that right and all else follows. As for sliders I see a lot of them used by those who have no idea what they are trying to achieve with slider shots. In movie language the main use of slow tracking shots while people are talking is to create a feeling of separation from the person talking and their environment, or reveal something... usually it creates a sense of detachment which I can't help thinking is the exact opposite of what a good interview should be convening.
The art of good film making is using techniques to help tell the story, too many grab all the toys they can think of and to hell with the story as long as the shot looks cool.
Sorry to be a downer
All artists are prepared to suffer for their work, but why are so few prepared to learn to draw? :BANKSY
