Hi guys,

For the last 3 years, I've been working as a steadicam operator here in Belgium. I tried to let it all build up slowly so I could stay confident in what was possible and what not.
The time is now ripe to start assembling a short reel. I wasn't able to collect all of the footage I wanted but started to edit something anyway.
Your comments and opinions are greatly appreciated!



Cheers!
Jules

I like it.


Thanks! Any particular comments? Length of the reel, the music, maybe too much of the same projects? (been waiting for other rushes and will incorporate them as soon as I have them.

Cheers!

Looks good! Not sure about the music, but everyone has an opinion on that.

I think you did an excellent job of keeping it fresh. You stuck to a core group of projects that showed both your skills and showed the professional type of projects you have experience with (all high production value projects, it appears).

The length was great with me. I always try to stay under 4 minutes.

Amazing. What do you use? We just got a Zephyr and it feels so light.

Thanks for the comments guys.
I'm using a Pro sled with MKV HD boxes, a Pro arm and an ultra vest. Puzzled my rig together and I'm now very glad with it.

I like it. The only thing is that I think your weakest shots are in the very beginning. I did not like a few of the "elderly with the finger" shots. In particular the one with the lady that dropped her bag in front of the building. I felt that framing was not right. Plus it beeig a very negative message right on top of the reel...
The rest of the reel is really good. My favorite shot is of the kid climbing the tree. There's just something very symbolic about it...

Thanks for your opinion, Daniel. I'll take that into consideration. The shots in the beginning evoked mixed opinions with different people. I for myself like the edge and different touch it gives to the reel. I'm awaiting some fresh footage to incorporate soon and will then think again on the beginning part. Thanks again and have a nice christmas!
