Hello everyone !


Here is my first (short) demo, edited usin rusheds from a few projects I filmed this past year. 

I have worked with my new Aero 30 I bought a couple months ago but also with other rigs such as Glidecam X22 or L'aigle Aura (french brand).


If you could give me some advice and critics about my shots, it would be great ! (I know the last few shots are really far from good, should I delete it from my demo ?)


Shot with 5dmk3 and FS7 (for the last one).


Here is the link : 


And of course, I'm still working, still trying to improve !

Not bad for a newbie. Only advice I have for you is in order to be a good steadicam operator you have to be a great camera operator. Pause random frames in your steadicam footage and ask yourself is this good frame composition, headroom, horizon? Also look for frames which can be improved and seek out techniques and practice them. Gradually work your way up to shooting with 50-85mm lenses and review them as mentioned but at regular speed (slow motion can give you the illusion of being a good steadicam operator). Keep working at it, always trying to improve regardless of your skill level.

Hey Mitch !

Thank you for the interesting feedback ! I'll try to freeze and analyse my frames as you suggest. What I try to work in my shots to begin with is to keep a steady and good horizon and the headroom. Of course I always think of the construction of my frames and their meaning.

I will keep your advice in mind for my next shoots. I have 3 in the next few weeks. I'll post them in this topic !
