It used to be an indie film had to prove it was a ‘real’ movie by including a crane shot at the beginning (or the end) with the camera lifting high above the street. And then we were supposed to use these Steadicams and run around everywhere, popping through doorways, skipping down stairs and jumping into the back of a speeding car.
But now we have to put in these aerial drone shots, sweeping over the top of the 10,000ft mountain top and dropping down to the valley below to zoom into the front door of our hero’s house as he picks up the morning paper.
Well I say ‘Poo’ to that.
The only person who needs to see the top of my head is my barber.
