Gurney Shot

Ever heard of a "dolly shot" in Hollywood films? Here I execute a "gurney shot". We used a real hospital gurney. They strapped me down and ran down the hallways with me while doctors rushed down the corridor.

 

That's an Arriflex SR-1 16mm film camera I'm using. With all the attachments, it was pretty heavy. I think this was a couple months before my elbow injury, otherwise there's no way I would have been able to use it onehanded.

 

I was supposed to straddle a hot girl on the gurney to get this awesome shot. Sadly, we cut the shot from the shotlist. That sucked, but was probably for the best.
