Panning a room

Shot 5 has evolved into a panning shot of the whole room. In the finished shot he will walk from the chair to the drawers and take out a book. The posted video is just my practice run to get down a smooth pan. That's my first armature standing next to the drawers.

I printed lines .5 degrees apart radiating in a circle and taped that to part of the tripod, then I cut a pointer out of tin, taped that above the lines and moved the tripod by hand.

The pics below might explain it.

The set is 2 1/4" scale (the door is 15" tall).
