Brian Liepe: Adding movement to your shots really enhances your ability to tell a story. Whether at shooting handheld, like we discussed in the last movie, or placing your camera on a jib, camera movement allows the audience to engage in a story in a very effective and unique way. Here is a small tool that can add a big cinematic effect to your shots, it's called a slider. Just adding a slight deliberate and slow movement to your shot can help reflect elements in your story, plus there is something sort of magical about giving the audience a perspective that moves through space.
