What is the appeal of handheld camerawork in film and TV? Strictly from an visual aesthetic, I find it disorienting and unappealing. Additionally, I think it''s rather cheap-looking, which is insulting, really: these are multi-million dollar productions, yet they can''t afford a tripod?%0D\ %0D\ Done in moderation - say, in a key scene to amp impact on the audience - it''s okay. But entire TV series and films using shaky cam - I can''t watch ''em. Friday Night Lights and Modern Family may be marvelously written and acted, but I refuse to watch them because of the shaky cam. I could barely endure the last 2 Jason Bourne films or Rachel Getting Married.%0D\ %0D\ I wish they would just stop.
