I was honored to be brought in as the second Steadicam Op. Adam Keith, superb Steadicam / Jib / Ped Op is the staff member who does consistently fine work for ABC Network in NYC.

We shared the duty, swapping every 90 minutes or so. Adam wound up doing about 60% to my 40% of air time. The Director made use of the multi level aspect of the set, having us hustle up and back to get shots.

Peter Abraham, S.O.C.

Kris, we can not edit individual posts and Louis' started the thread with comments of value pertaining to Steadicam. The fact that he wished to tack that on at the end is his decision but I don't think it warrants removal of the entire thread as it was not negative in tone (you may not agree with it, but its not bashing any person). While this is certainly not a political forum and I discourage such activity, I don't believe it is actually against the rules to say something like that (else Ron would be in big trouble with all the "Vote for Pedro"). Hope that makes sense

No worries Louis. It was a follow up that got my panties in a bunch. It and my intentionally offensive post have been appropriately deleted. This nation just went through a bitter election and it should be noted that millions of folks stand on both sides. This forum has for the most part been non political and I hope will continue to be a place that we communicate about our profession. There are plenty of places to go if one wants to discuss politics.
