The Steadicam Guild presents the Operator's Master Class, an intensive practical workshop that focuses on the techniques and challenges faced by the working operator through realistic scene study.
The participants will be presented with shots to perform that duplicate the experience of being on set as much as possible. Because of the small size of the group, more time will be devoted to finessing the shots than in a conventional workshop. Along the way, the instructor will pass on various tips and tricks as well as critique the results.
The unique aspect of this class is the focus on a scripted scene that is as close as possible to an elaborate Steadicam "one-er" that an operator may encounter on set. Working actors are on hand to perform the scene which is custom-written and specific to the location, a standing set on a working soundstage.
Due to the small class size, students will have the opportunity for multiple takes which will be played back and evaluated by the instructor. This "real-life" experience has proven to be extremely valuable for prior participants. <--click on link for testimonials.
