Good article with link to the video transfer of some of the shots from the original demo reel for Steadicam.


I've watched it twice already. Completely inspiring.

Thanks for sharing Peter. Blows me away how game changing the concept of Steadicam was and is.
Thank you Garrett.

So cool!!


When I met him a few months ago at the Tiffen's day he did talk about some of these shots. Pretty exciting...
