Hey guys,
I was wondering who the ops were for the show. It seemed like there were two, but it could have been just one. One op seemed to be cabled while another was wireless. Was that the case? I only say wireless because there was one shot towards the begining of the show where the op was going circles around Kenny Chesney (I think that's who it was) and if that was done with cable, amazing. I didn't see any when the op went back behind the band, but some cable is sometimes hard to see. If it was wireless, what kind of system was it? What kind of focus did you use?
In any event, I only saw the first half hour to an hour of th show, but what I saw was great. Good Job!

The two steadicam ops on the AMA's were Dave Eastwood & Manny Bonilla. Both cameras were wired. The utility (cable) guys on these live shows are worth their weght in gold. That's why you didn't see any wire. .Both rigs owned by Eastwood use a focus motor and zoom handle made by the same folks that build Jimmy Jibs. Most TV guys do their own zooming and focus.
I'll pass along your atta-boy.......Kris
