Panaglide test fligt

How cool is THAT?! (except, uh, for the stealing-from-GB's patent part). Fun to see Panavision in the 70's! Would that have been Tarzana?
The final feature I operated in 2009 was for the estimable John Carpenter, for whom this tests were presumably mounted. He hadn't directed a feature in over 10 years at that point. He referred to my rig as the Panaglide for a week or two (I even pulled a Teddy and wrote out "Super Panaglide" in my best approximation of the PanaFont and stuck it to the monitor) until I finally felt compelled to point out that the device he was referring to was long dead and gone.
It was pretty great to work for a director who created part of the vocabulary that we still use today.

That link didn't work for me (it might be an expired link or it might be my computer) I think found the article on Garrett's website though, in case anyone else is interested and having the same trouble I was. http://www.garrettca...raptionwars.pdf
some really fascinating nock offs, especially the Sri Lanka version.
