Saw this picture of an operator, or perhaps a model with a rig on him? Anyone know who this is?

The picture is linked to a news story about the Norwegian music video director Ray Kay, based in L.A.

Love the fact that the operator is wearing sunglasses. B) Attached File  1333049143837_101.jpg   516.65KB   473 downloads

back in the good old days of green screens you could do that!

Not John H -- old farts like John (and me) aren't hip enough to show up to work like that.

Looks like Ruben Sluøátêr.
I'm sure it's Ruben Sulghøîtêr
I can tell because the camera looks tilted.

Funny coincidence, that was a job that was poached from me earlier this week. Whether it was known by the operator or not is undetermined, but friends on the job confirmed shady business practices. The director and the product are Norwegian, maybe the op is too? Cool photo though.

Mike was that in Orlando then? We don't have those types of Palms down here, but we do have plenty of lambo's driving around.

Just looked at the picture again, grip gear is from Unique producer Services, so maybe here in Miami, but Those palms are definitely not native So. Florida palms I was gonna say LA.

Could it be Rick Tiedemann? beared line looks the same.

No, it was in Miami. One of the two I was coming down for when I talked to you. At least that's what the original article references that this picture is from. Could be an old photo from another Ray Kay shoot.

I wear sunglasses when I operate, no problem with the cinetronic

i doubt that is actually an operator, look at the grip and the aiming of the camera...


If you were trying to operate under the gimbal I see no problem with that grip

Anyone know who this is?



Could it be the Loose Moose himself, Bob Wise?

How do you know that the job was Poached?

The operator in question is Jimmy Buffet. It's in Florida because the red topped hoochie-mamma is known as "Miami Junipero Sara." A well known call girl.

Hi all

Staged for something not sure it's a real job

1) nicely pressed shirt. No sweat

2) who wears white when shooting a car?

3) no one on the cam side? Never happens on jobs I'm on

4)why perfect new jeans when in hot place and others in shorts?

5) hand position ok. Agree w Eric !!

6) something wrong let alone the glasses.

Thats my observation.

Ja
