Director of Photography Timur Civan on How They Made MōVI's Jaw-Dropping Debut Film
Perhaps the biggest story at NAB this year was Freefly Systems’ steadicam-esque gyro gimbal MōVI, which we’ve covered several times. The Vincent Laforet-directed debut film was DP’d by nofilmschool friend Timur Civan, and at NAB I had a chance to sit down with Timur briefly to chat about how they shot the debut video, how the Canon 1D C behaved, how the MōVI might affect the steadicam market, and what impact it might have on filmmaking in general.
This was an informal sit-down in the NAB press room so please forgive any awkwardness! And given we refer a few times to specific shots from the debut video itself, if you haven’t seen it already or need a refresher, I’m including the film itself at the bottom of this post again.
Is it just me or is my head large enough to cause an eclipse?
