See, interesting that you mention that. When we filmed Dinoconda in China a few years ago, and then again the S&S Prototype Free Spin, I wanted to mount the camera on a fixed part of the chassis to show off how much the ride spins.
For whatever reason, the parks that have installed these rides don't ever seem to show that off. They always mount the camera to the spinning ride vehicle which just becomes this blur of spinning that it's impossible to really grasp what the ride does. I've always felt a good mix between the two shots really sells the ride.
I don't know if parks just hadn't thought about doing that or people didn't like that angle, but I always wondered why we were the only ones to mount cameras like that to 4D coasters.
Not saying that I know more than the parks when it comes to filming rides, but.... well... let's be honest... most parks are pretty clueless when it comes to filming their own rides!
