Steadicam Newbie Reel
Posted 28 December 2009 - 04:46 AM
I´ve been steadicam operating now for 1 year. - just a small, bad system, but it‘s just for practicing..
I am 16 years old and still in school but I really dream of becoming a professional op.
Now I´d like to show you:
My First STEADICAM REEL
If you have any criticism or suggestions, please let me know!!!
best regards from Austria,

Reflections and shadows - yours - get rid of them. They're not supposed to be seen. If you lose them, at least you'll give the illusion that many of those practice shots could have been from an actual production rather than following your friends and family around with the rig. That's a fun little mirror exercise in there toward the end, but it has no place on a demo reel. With a reel, you're trying to demonstrate to other productions what you have done and what you can do on a set, basically telling them why they should hire you. There do seem to be some shots from decent projects - the singer, the scooter, the wedding... Focus on those, even if it means your reel would now only be one minute long.

thanks for your feedback! Until now I havn't worked on many productions with spectacular shots so, as you said, I just made some shots with my family
I renamed the video now. But next year I gonna put a "real reel" together after I'll have done some more productions..
all the best,

I know, I should practice more the basics as line exercises etc... and I'll do it..!! I practice the slow moves even very often, and some of those are quite good, but not good enough for my "demo video"...
You said holding lockoff, I dont know excactly, this mean fast stops (after run,tilt, pan..) Am I right?
and sorry for my "english", it isn't perfect..
