Let's revive that topic shall we?

A couple of weeks back I saw a very nice Movie called "Stuck on you" with Greg Kinnear and Matt Damon. It's about siamis twins where one of the two (greg) wants to become an Actor. They move to LA and he actually scorse a part in a series, as nobody is supposed to Know that he is logging around his brother, they frame Matt Damon out all the time which looks like very bad daytime drama footage shot by Camera Operator/Steadicam Colin Anderson. (Just that part, the rest looks like the real great stuff he does).
During the film you will see Colin walking throuht the frame twice with his Steadicam.
In one scene you can see him, after a yelled cut, him walking to dock his rig and pick up his cellphone in typical LA tradition, actually EVERBODY is picking up his cell in the backround... welcome to "our" LA film set...

Check it out, it's worth seeing (not only because of the operator inshot, but the subject matter...).

Just saw the special edition "Indiana Jones"

Nice footage of Garrett on "Temple of Doom" and the hanging Bridge... Garrett walking on that tiny walkway with the rig outside the bridge shooting Harrison Ford on the Bridge...

Scary! Any Comment on that shot Garrett.

Did Garrett mad it to the new Forum yet?

How about a certain "someone's" appearance in Scrubs?
Talk about an operator in shot...

Hi Charles,

Are you a split personality?

Charles Papert Member#79 or Chupap Member #43...

Intertesting I thought you could only have one user name per e-mail address...

Tim???

Anyhow...
Hope that Garrett has a good time on the boat...

Nope, wrong on both counts.

Did I forget to mention that if you guess incorrectly, YOU have to give ME an accessory from your kit?



Oh, I guess I did forget that part......

Ok Peter, I think I have half the answer. Ron Vidor operated the Stunt Man. At least so he claims.

And I am gonna guess Ted Churchil for the other movie.
