|What a professional SnorriCam looks like|
SnorriCams have been used within music videos which I have looked at such as System of a Down's Chop Suey. This is an example of it being used on a professional level however as you will see below there is another end to the spectrum with similar results if not even better! 0:57 and 1:10 are examples of the SnorriCam being used in this music video. In this music video you can even see the harness that holds the SnorriCam to the band member which is something I want to avoid! So having clothing covering it or having the camera zoomed in closer to the actor will be vital! I can learn from what they have done and make sure I don't do the same thing.

They have also been used by media students from the year above in their coursework which shows that with a small budget you can build one yourself and get similar results to a professional SnorriCam which could cost hundreds of pounds. 0:52 and 1:04 are examples of the SnorriCam being used in this music video and I hope I can get similar results when I create my own. A post from one of the creators of this music video highlights him creating a SnorriCam and photographing the stages in the creation. The SnorriCam works really well with the narrative of their music video as it follows a mans addiction to drugs and with the SnorriCam it can give a really clear CU whilst slightly blurring the background when movement occurs (connoting the drug taking in the narrative)
