Suggested NEW questions: 1. What is the first name of the person who invented the Garfield mount which enables the Steadicam arm to be mounted on a Mitchell top
2. What is the name of the person who invented the Steadicam alien?
3. Who wrote the well known tome, A Manual of Steadicam Etiquette?
4. Who is head of Professional Steadicam sales for the Tiffen corp?
5. What is the most important difference between the model II and model III Steadicam vests?
6. Which is the brightest Steadicam monitor ever manufactured?
7. What film contains the longest single steadicam move?t

Needed more submissions to the new Steadicam forum secret access questions....


Let's change the forum so only those who can answer at least say 6 questions can view the forum and at least 10 to be eligible to post.

Regarding #1--don't think it was his invention, more like a period of naming parts after notable CP employees (see: Robings J Bracket and West Docking Bracket, monikkers that have disappeared into antiquity, sad considering they belong to gentlemen whose career contributions to the Steadicam world were greater albeit less infamous than JG's...)

My suggested access questions more needed!!!



What is the first name of the person who invented the Garfield mount which allow the Steadicam arm to mount to a Mitchell base?

Who is the head of Professional Steadicam Sales for Tiffen
What is the most important difference between the CP model II Vest and the CP model III Vest?
Who wrote the Tome: A guide to Etiquette?
In What film does the longest Steadicam move ever made appear?

I suggest the site be modified with many additional questions with a minimum to be answered before a person can view the site and a higher number before they can post!!!

A lot of what I learned (and knowledge that would answer those questions) came from this very forum. Why would you bar someone from reading (posting is different than just reading) the forum? The forum is full of secrets, but they are secrets that should be out there for anyone to search and read.

What's the answer to 6 and 7? Just curious.
Otherwise the question should be: What is "Lisigav"? (fun tip: do a google image for it)

More seriously: I knew the name of garret before entering the site, but for some reason, I kept on writing "Garret Brown" for answer, instead of just "Brown". Did a quick google and got the right wording. Not complicated and limits the DVXuser kind of crowd in here.
As for accessibility, you can still read the forum and search it before signing in and look for a thread with the answer.

Those are a bit too easy. Perhaps some more obscure questions are in order.
