Hey All...this website is awesome, I am learning SO MUCH..I am 28 - just did a course in Munich Germany bought a Walter Klassen duel mount vest and was in the process of buying a PRO from George Paddock BUT the finance cought up with me. So now I have my vest but no rig - that sucks ...Here in SA I cannot rent a Rig so i am struggling to pratice what I learned in Germany. With all that said, I am thinking of coming to the USA for a period of time to assist Steadicam Operators and do low key work. Just to get some experience & to get my name out there..More than likely California. I have done some sport here in SA but my heart is in Film..I did 2 years of Film Studies as DP but I wanna be a Steadicam Operator and Cam Operator for a while.

Are there any Operators who will be able to help me find my way around when I land in the USA in May..

I have a Walter Klassen vest duel mount I bought..

Kind Regards
Jurgen..

hmmm. gotta ask :) did you plan any of your purchases out? that's a lot of money to spend on a vest with no arm/sled :P maybe get rid of the vest and find an old 3a system to at least keep you practicing???

best of luck

I thought that back mount vest needs fit one person, so it might be very difficult to find similar size operator.
