I ran across this after doing a google search a long time ago and figured I could find it again but never have been able to. I think it was "Requirements For Steadicam Assistants" (1986) but it could have been something else.

Really I would love copies of any of his works but I would really love to be able to give the one I ran across before to some ACs I work with :-)

Anyone have it?

You do realize that that and the manual of style are both VERY tongue in cheek

Thanks for posting it. I used the search function on the site and google on the site and wasn't able to find it. Still can't. Is there a thread I am not able to find for some reason?

Actually managed to find the other time you posted it by searching for the filename: http://www.steadicam...h...mp;p=35893

There wasn't any direct reference in the post to what it was so thats probably why search was failing me.

So Erwin, what other Ted Churchill goodies do you have up your sleeve?

Since our numbers here are ever-growing, this might be a good opportunity to re-link Ted's "Day in the Life" video for those who haven't seen it.

I see the veterand keeps file off about anything, so perhaps you remember the post that was about the RED camera. It was a youtube movie. The movie was original a scene from DER UNTERGANG, but the subtitles went about the red camera. I cant find it anymore. Could be that i search under wrong tags. Anyone?
