Exploration of Movement to create action and suspense

Action and suspense in films are created by both fast
movement and quick cutting juxtaposed with slow motion and static
shots.  The goal of this project is to use all of these styles of
cinematography to explore the creation visual suspense.  This will be
done by staging and filming a sword fight between two medieval
warriors.  The final video will be 2-3 minutes in length. The glidecam
is needed for this project since it is the one piece of equipment that
allows for forms of movement that are nearly impossible to accomplish
simply by hand.
