I ask the question from the perspective of being a DP and a Steadicam op: "Is this a compelling piece independent of the technique used to accomplish it?", and I'd have to say "Yes", I found it very interesting and engaging. Eric was tasked with figuring out a way to shoot long stretches of walking footage- with the flexibility to have the camera facing either forward or over his shoulder- while keeping a small crew footprint and not interfering with the spontaneous dialogue. His solution utilized the resources he had available, solving the puzzle of how to shoot the footage in a very clever way. It worked well for him and that's really the only answer necessary. I applaud the ingenuity and energy involved in bringing this story to life. Nice work!
