T-Pain wanted to play steadicam operator so I let him try the rig on. Surprisingly, he didn't immediately want to take it off. They actually played the song and rolled a few feet. I thought, if he's going to operate, I'm going to rap.......... Check out my smooth dance moves!

Too good--amazing shot! It also strikes me that the vest appears to fit him quite well, and your dance move looks very respectable :)

That's hilarious, especially since I'm pretty sure you don't wear a white jumpsuit while operating, so some thought went into this..

My worry is what discernible footage there might be (judging by the direction the camera is pointing) :lol:

lol, actually, i did the steadicam on 'im on a boat'... i almost pissed myself when they started to rap. i had no idea what the track was, who the artist was or that t-pain (who ive worked with several times) was in the video. i was just expecting your standard rap video with money and bitches on an expensive yacht. then those dudes came out and started raping..... i could barley hold the camera steady.

and... i actually was wearing a white pair of warm up pants and a white long sleve t-shirt. i guess im a bit of a gangsta operator!
