THE FACE ON THE BARROOM FLOOR

THE FACE ON THE BARROOM FLOOR is a classic story from Nelson Algren, who wrote about the lives of the post–World War II Chicago working class – down-on-their luck, hardscrabble survivors, rumdums and twists, conmen and street walkers, all of them hellbent on scratching their way toward one more day alive. In these terrible streets, pride meant everything, and deep insult was given by anyone who questioned it. Scores were settled quietly and quickly, out on the sawdust-covered floor. And when it was done, victor and vanquished would get on with their lives, feeling a little better about themselves. But not all the fights ended the way they were supposed to. Sometimes, wounded pride was the most dangerous weapon of them all.

Wow! The camera animation is spectacular! What rig do you use?

Thanks Plastic Point! For the basic panning shots, I used a very simple dolly from Neewer (about $40 on Amazon), totally manual, and for the swiveling shots, I just used my tripod, a Vanguard (model SBH-100) which has a really smooth turning head

Cool! Was it something like this?

I highly recommend it. It's very sturdy and the movement is super smooth. The bars also have a pattern on them so you can very easily move exactly the same distance you need to in each shot.

Good filming!
