Hey Guys n Gals,
I was on a shoot up in Gunnedah for a few weeks and during the down time I watched a bunch of BTS stuff from films. One of the films that cought my attention was the BTS for GIJoe Retaliation.

Hes holding the mattebox. You can see him doing it a whole buch through the video.
So, have you guys seen the technique of the steadicam op in the fight scenes?
Is this sort of thing common?
Do you Guys n Gals have any interesting techniques like this that are part of your bag of tools?
I thought it was super interesting and very counter intuitive to what I previously thought about steadicam. I figured putting my hands anywhere but the grip was totally off limits but I guess if it gets the shot, it gets the shot.
Anyway, thought it was interesting and thought I'd share
