Steadicam credit in end titles?
Posted 04 October 2010 - 09:00 AM
My question is why does there seem to be a lack of credit given to this profession mostly on TV shows but sometimes in feature films also? Is it just assumed the A or B camera op will somewhere sometime take that credit?
I watch a lot of TV, I like to watch the new shows, Castle, Greys and such but the Steadicam ops name does not appear, usually.
Eric Fletcher S.O.C I know works in this market Charles Papert S.O.C also. Can you guys explain this lack of recognition? By the way Charles since I found out you did some of the Buffy episodes I went and looked there as well, no credit. What gives?

I went recently to the theater to watch a movie that I did a little while ago as Operator/Steadicam, just to find out that they erroneously credited an operator good friend of mine for the whole thing. He took over on the last 2-3 days of shooting, as I had to leave. I did about 6 weeks of shooting and got zero credit...(obviously it's not my friends fault)

Here in Australia most of the TV networks squeeze the credits into one corner of the screen and show promo's for the following weeks show or what coming up next so here we never really get to see them anymore.In some cases they don't even show them as well .
I have given up.
