I know this to be a question that is probably impossible to answer, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
I'm working on an idea that involves our industry and I am looking for some approximate numbers to bring to the business plan.
What further complicates the question is that the project will only involve what we consider to be operators with "a legitimate company's" stabilizer (this includes small rigs such as the Merlin and obviously full sized rigs from the many great companies).
I don't want to include "Steadicam Operators" who are buying the cheap knock off rigs from over seas in this project.
I don't consider them to be a value to this project and frankly I believe this project offers those "rigs and their operators" no value.
I guess this could be considered a two fold question....how many operators? and what manufacturers do you consider to be legitimate players in our market? Who's in and who's out and why?
Any information provided would be a huge help and perhaps it would help me get this project off the ground.
