Hi@all...!

like to share my first Steadicam Reel "Made in Austria"...



Please don't look at all these crazy guys in front of the lens, just score my operating ;-))
unfortunately there's not so much scenic work in my country...

i operate since 2 years on a sachtler artemis rig & west and a 3a gold springs arm...

cheers

OK Mate, here ya go:

First & foremost, lose yourself. Seriously, lose the footage of you operating; makes you look like a hobbyist (not your operating form, but all real clients know what a Steadicam looks like).
Don't repeat shots on your reel (not sure if you actually did that or just went back to the same projects, but it feels that way).
Shorten it. I shut it off after 4 minutes because that's all you get of my time (plus the time to write this).
Other than that, respectable enough. Keep at it and good luck.

thank you for your fair comments!

...the first step is always the hardest...
the latest thing i want is boring clients...!! i didn't notice that myself.

hope to get some positive replies too,
otherwise it's time to overwork that thing a little... ;-)

Gunther,

"hope to get some positive replies too, "

You should take the positive from mine as well. The operating is solid. Just cut yourself out and shorten to three minutes. Show them the best of the best.
