RE: shaky-cam
What? You mean home videos where someone makes you wish you were dead from bad camera work?

RE: shaky-cam
Just to catch everybody up here's a link:

Declare War on Shaky Cam Movies

Some examples of Shaky Cam movies: The Blair Witch Project, Cloverfield, Friday Night Lights

Now that I actually know what it is we're talking about I'd have to say it has it's place. For instance, when I watched Cloverfield the movement of the camera although a little distracting at times, helped to cement the chaos of the picture. In Blair Witch it was annoying, though- a little over done imo.

I can't say I'm against it totally, but I can see how it can be overused or used in the wrong movie(Bourne Series)

RE: shaky-cam
Oh I hate them!!

It's been a pet hate of mine for years. Trying to achieve realism through "shaky-cam" is a waste of time and just makes the movie really irritating.

of course it is. when you're observing whatever-it-is in person you're not shaking your head as if you suffer from delirium tremens or epilepsy. the vast vajority of the cameramen spasms just feel and look completely unnatural.

LMFAO!!! Tongue

When i see a movie that has "shaky-cam", i always think to myself:

That bastard of a camera man, if he hasn't got it yet, deserves to have Parkinson's

the director deserves it more.
the cameramen have to do what the director says.

RE: shaky-cam
In Cloverfield the guy was supposed to be filming while in utter terror, but who in their right mind keeps filming in a situation like that? That throws the realism of the entire movie out the window
