Dan Curean interview – cameraman at Romanian TV broadcasting Cluj, taken in august 2007 with the occasion of filming two days in Herculane area for Nature and Adventure TV Show on TVR2.
As a TV cameraman and TV pro, you filmed from S1 waterbike two days, what is your impression about it?
This is not the first time that I shoot in extreme conditions for fishing or hunting TV shows, but after two days, my impression is very good, I moved freely and I filmed as I want, pedaling. I do a lot of traveling, I surrounded my subjects having a very good stability and filmed in the mean time, normally you can’t do this.
So this water bike is not only very good for fishing.
Tell me what are the minuses you find on that water bike?
From my point of view, as one that I use the water bike for a specific reason, I missed some accessories for storing my tapes and batteries, and some other tools, the other thing
is a small instability on forth direction, in the rest is absolutely OK.
Would you like to use it again for other shootings on lakes and rivers?
Yes, off course I would. It is an option at I couldn’t think of before.
…Cause you use normally a very small team, at minimum possible…
Usually, as a cameraman you can’t care of your moves, practically I seat in a boat, or any thing else, or on the shore, and others have to pull me in the position, or do the thrust. That system is not productive and it slowdown all the action for a good shot. With this water bike it is not a problem, you can move as you want and filming in the same time,, everyone do their own jobs, and you do your own. I can go where and when I want, and quick enough.
So for filming this water bike gives you an advantage unknown till now, for me.
