Someone Went and Motion Stabalized All of The Blair Witch Project

I read that back when Blair Witch first came out, some people actually vomited in the theater. Not because it was so terrifying (though that might not have helped), but because if it wasn’t the first film to use shaky-cam, it was certainly the shaky-cam-iest.

Now, 15 years later, someone has gone through and motion stabilized the entire movie. If you couldn’t watch it before, now you can without all the onscreen waggling. I wonder if they’ll do this for Cloverfield and the Bourne Identity next, as those are the #2 and #3 offenders to be sure. Though to be fair, I think we’re probably immune to the filming style by now, as it’s so commonplace.

Fun fact: I’ve tried to watch Blair Witch 2 three separate times for science, and have never gotten past twenty minutes.

  1. Lol don’t forget every action movie made during and in the wake of the Bourne Phenomenon. Actually “Saving Private Ryan” did it first since Spielberg wanted the film to have a documentary look like we were watching old war footage (funny how Hollywood thought that idea should apply to fictional action films). Oh and I am not immune to the shaky-cam. I’m an old fart that doesn’t like the way action movies look now. When I try to watch them I STILL get motion sickness. I plan on getting in touch with the person who did this and ask how it’s done as I’m an editor myself and would LOVE to “fix” all the new action movies Sly and Arnold have done in the past few years.
