No longer available...

One of the most creative simple panning shots was achieved by Gwen Wetzler in "The Problem With Power." The character close-ups move on a separate field, creating a wonderful sense of depth; the camera panning across from Prince Adam's sadness to King Randor being told by Man-At-Arms that He-Man is no longer an option against the forces of evil. Although Gwen Wetzler directed this episode, a lot of credit probably has to go to Tom Tataranowicz who undoubtedly would have come up with this idea for a panning shot during his storyboarding of the episode...

Right on, James! I love the way the scene pans over in different layers, like that one scene from "The Rainbow Warrior," featuring the other side of Snake Mountain. :)

Glad to see another excerpt taken from this memorable and intense episode, in addition to the fantastic panning shot of He-Man carrying Teela off into the sunset from the March 2006 Blog entry. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

This camera-move is a great one. Reminds me of the experimental use in "Cosmic Coment".

Kudos for director and anyone who helped this became a reality.

Thank you for this highlight James!
