Filming Tips

The film clips used with this article were created using a camera-mounted tripod to shoot an actor “activating” his Tactical-Super-Glasses, then a second shot was created to simulate what the actor is seeing—this is called the Point of View (POV) clip. The first clip is necessary in order to set the scene. Ideally there would be three shots: one to show the actor walking in, then a close-up of the eyes of the robot or of our futuristic soldier putting on his battle glasses, then the final shot showing the HUD POV. Either way, it’s important that the POV shot is taken using a tripod-mounted camera to cut down on any unnecessary movement. You will see why this is important later in this article.
