Awesome. She got tapped by the Wachowski Brothers to shoot footage on their new project. Cool motorcycle and walking shots.

Get in here and tell all Kat !!

Can't link directly, Google this:

Best to all,

Thanks Peter! You've always been super supportive and I can't fully express my appreciation in words. Big hugs when I see you next.

Firstly, Daniele Massaccesi is A Camera and regular Steadicam Op on "Sense 8." He helped me get a feel for what the Wachowskis liked and answered any questions I had. John Toll was also very helpful and informative. Both a pleasure to work with.

For this particular scene they required a female operator, due to the strict rules of the Dykes on Bikes club in San Fran. The stunt coordinator and vehicle owner worked with me on our prep day. All of us making sure I was safe and comfortable on the bike. Speed rail with cushion was beyond important. I was told I didn't need it since the parade was only 15min. I pushed for it anyway and I'm glad I did. Ended up driving around on it for two hours.

Camera was F55 with Fuji 19-90 with FIZ. We played between 50 & 90 but mostly at 90... so that was fun. Aileen, my first AC was amazing. Kudos to her on a job well done. Aside from my rig almost being taken out by a badly aimed fire hydrant hose, it was an amazing time! Pride weekend in San Francisco was an unforgettable experience in itself.

Thank you to all you ops for all the useful information you have shared.

Thank you for your help. Definitely going to suggest shipping batteries first from now on. Not worth the hassle.

Am I the first "non Dyke on a Bike member?" Maybe? Does getting hit on count?
