MICRODOLLY was on location in Canada with Director of Photography Lincoln Lewis and Jib Operator Barry Gregg.
"Director Ben Medina wanted to shoot in a remote location that made it impossible to use a large heavy jib arm," said Gregg. "For the final 'Henry the Sixth' scene we started on a close-up and boomed up through the smoke to reveal the aftermath of the battle.
I used our MICRODOLLY Power Head to keep the principal actor in frame as we rose up for the final shot," concluded Gregg.
