Interesting behind-the-scenes look at Keanu Reeves' Directorial debut 'Man of Tai Chi' (2013)
Synopsis: In Beijing, a young martial artist's skill places him in position to experience opportunities and sacrifices.
Man this is something. From a technical standpoint, this is some serious progression in terms of what filmmakers will be able to do in the future. For something that was previously only used in a CGI format, it's amazing to see how smooth the camera's movements are. Comparing the shot with something like the (horrible) fight scene on top of the reactor in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' (where about 90% of the scene was CGI) to this, it just shows how little CGI is needed in a fast-paced Action flick.
The camera is attached to a boom arm, which is in turn controlled by a computer programmed with a set of complex movements that allow the kind of fast-moving camera angles you can't get from a regular crane, steadi-cam or even handheld work. - - FirstShowing.net
