In the past, the creativity and freedom of camera movement in shooting films was limited by the size and weight of the camera, which often had to be moved on a dolly or crane. Movements were carefully planned and scripted, reducing the camera's role in the language of film. Using clips from his own films, award-winning documentary filmmaker Leonard Rettel Helmrich explores what possibilities exist in film as professional cameras become smaller and lighter and limitations on film language disappear.
