Motion is the essence of Single Shot Cinema.
This technique enables filmmakers to move freely in a space with a camera and take long, uninterrupted shots. To ensure stability of the shots, Leonard developed a stability device to place a camera on, the Comodo Orbit.
“…you can move inside an event and go with your camera to the right spot, at the right moment,… That’s what the whole single-shot cinema is about: trying to think of the world as a kind of clockwork, a machinery, with everything interrelated. The bigger and smaller things are just as important. In a clockworks you can’t pull out a little gear because the whole thing jams. The solution is to become one of the clockworks.”, Leonard Retel Helmrich.
