Hey, everyone. I'll try to keep this short.

Graduated from Columbia College Chicago in 2013. Janice Arthur did a Steadicam demo for one of my classes. I already had aspirations of being a camera operator and after this, I knew I had to add Steadicam op to that as well.

Took a workshop with Janice to learn the basics.

Talked an indie production I was working on into securing a rig for me to fly for their shoot. Got the itch real bad after this.

Scraped together some money to buy a used Flyer, thanks to this forum.

Practice, practice. Yada yada.

Tried not to completely embarrass myself on a oner last summer on an indie feature.

Family situation worked out where we could move from Illinois to the LA area and now I'm looking to meet some new people. I reached out to Janice and she recommended I come here.

I've mostly been a lurker here aside from facilitating my Flyer purchase, but I have been really impressed by the generosity and kindness I've seen from the community.

I could really use a West Coast mentor and if anyone out there would be kind enough to take me under their wing, I'd be incredibly grateful.

Thanks in advance,
Craig Schumacher
