I see Mark O'kane (Waterworld and Mr and Mrs Smith to name just 2 of thousands of jobs he did)
middle back row and Jesse Garfield front row left whom the Garfield adapter was named

A few othe faces look familiar but names are lost to me.

Ron Vidor, far right in light colored jacket.


I think that's Kyle Rudolph way down front, leg stuck out.


That's Garrett's wonderful wife Ellen Shire just in front of Garrett and to Garrett's left, hiding behind his fingerless glove is Ted Churchill.

Every four years we should revisit this thread to update names !!!  :)


Randy didn't self-identify, but I do believe he's the handsome devil down front, right end of 2nd row, moustache, light jeans, beaming grin. ( That grin says, " Oh MAN. Now I'm in it ! " )


I also think that's Jeff Zachary upper right corner, last row, hands on hips, behind Ron Vidor who is in the jacket. I think that's also Alain Anesto back row center with thick dark beard and round glasses frames.

Was this the 1st Steadicam Workshop? I thought it was at Image Devices in Miami. A rental house owned by David Haylock. (The place is still there and still open under the Budget Video Rentals now, same owner). Dan Kneece I believe was in attendance.
