Inside Car Mount
Movie footage taken from inside a car is a staple of contemporary films. Taking these car shots is problematic for guerilla filmmakers. Most car mounts are expensive, difficult to configure and use, somewhat distracting for the driver (resulting in safety issues), and may scratch the outside paint or ruin the interior. As a result, holding a camera by hand is the most commonly chosen solution. However, this method generates shaky and less than optimal footage. Using an in-car camera mount (see figure 9-1) can create ideal, smooth footage since the camera is essentially held static to the movement of the car.
