How To Get Amazing B-Rolls and Smooth Scrolling Video Footage

After getting myself into photography over the past few months (or more specifically – videography), I am now at the stage where I want to produce more creative footage.

B-Rolls and smooth scrolling video footage is what I need more. It just adds more depth and creative content in my videos. But how can I do this?

Watch the video above to see how to get amazingly smooth video footage, and B-Rolls so that you can use them for your videos.

 

Usage

Here’s a couple of photos showing my Canon EOS M6 mounted on the camera roller skate/dolly using a ball joint. These are the only two items you’ll need, and a smooth steady hand of course 😉
