Hello All,


About two months ago I invested in a Steadicam Flyer-LE and have been practicing ever since.  I just shot a short demo reel of a few practice shots and am looking for any and all tips, notes, or thoughts so that I can improve and start looking for real gigs.  


Here's the link:



Thank you

I'd try to keep more consistent head room on the actress.
And on the shots where she's entering the frame, start your move slightly ahead of hers so it doesn't feel like you're reacting to her movement, but rather moving in concert.
Keep practicing and fly safely!

do more leading as well. youll find that a lot of your operating will eventually be moving backwards. have a spotter.

I agree with the head room, but it looks like a key factor in that is that the camera needs to be higher instead of tilting up, keeping the lense more at eye level
