filming with a handheld camera = makes me sickly

I’ve never been a gal with a really sensitive stomach. I love roller coasters, and I don’t mind being on boats as long as the water isn’t too choppy. But some movies make me sick. I was trying to watch a movie with Nathan tonight and I couldn’t make it through the whole movie. Majority of the movie was filmed using a handheld camera, so it has a very shaky effect. Nathan says it’s to make it more realistic and more documentary-like. It just made me more motion sick. For all you up and coming cinematographers out there… this is a great technique to use in certain scenes… but for the majority of a movie??? Don’t do it!!! Ok, I’ve said my piece, and now I have to lay down. Oy!
