I'd be very curious to know what the equivalent rates are like over there.

Steve,
Your attitude is suck!
Make sure you don't stop by the same place to get coffee with me.

Richard, wage and pay depends on the living condition where you live. 1pound where you live won't worth much, but at the country will be a lot.
If you just compare it by the number, they make much less than you, but the value of their earns are 10 to 20 times larger than yours.

You both are such a....
Hm... just know how to walk a few steps, already thing other are running slower than you.

Ohh hey, hold on. My question was genuine and not slanted with the same tone that Steven presented to us.

I resent your remarks. I am aware of the differences in economics and cost of living. I am simply curious as to the equivalent rates out there. Why does my remark have to be seen as flippant, and laced with supposed ignorance and racism?

Wow steve , not sure what you mean by your comment. But I do have some idea.
BTW Deep Pal is a steadicam operator of great repute. I have never met him, but know of his reputation for a good part of my 20 years in this business. I'm sure you are a legendary operator, and you must be worried sick that this "Seven -Eleven" man along with other guys who "look like him" will come and take your job, but I doubt Deep Pal would really be that interested.

Even if my wife wasn't from India I would find this thread offensive.

India happens to be the largest producer of film in the world...

I think he makes great points in the interview, some things are a bit lost in translation....

"To be a good steadicam operator you must first be a good operator." it's solid advice.

I think the interview is very interesting, because it shows our line of work from a different, local perspective. steadicam is a tool that is being used all over the world, not everybody is "lucky" enough to work in "Hollywood". as he states, there are more than 1000 features being made in india every year.

I just think the host is not well informed and yes the 7/11 comment is offensive and has no place in this forum....
