Be there!

Garrett Brown will attend and Jerry Holway will be the Master of Command.

Topics:
Steadicam Posture with Chris Fawcett:
Chris, a former acrobat, now filmmaker, Steadicam owner-operator and acute observer of the physiology of Steadicam operating, will give his illustrated lecture on the good, the bad and the ugly extremes of Steadicam Form - and the musculoskeletal interactions involved. Fresh from its standing-room-only performance at the Paris Workshop, don't miss this highly informative presentation.

Vest Mechanics and Consequences:
Front vs. Back

Historic Footage:
the 'lost' Brown Stabilizer Demos circa 1973/74, were found in a mis-marked and restored in 2005 -- see the very first 16mm demos and the legendary "Thirty Impossible Shots" from the 35mm reel declared 'revolutionary' by Kubrick.

Dynamic balance:
theory and demo

G-Series Arms:
G-70 mysteries revealed!

New Sled:
Innovations & Techniques
Tilt head uses
Clamps, mounts, etc.
Important New Features (secret until after NAB)

Hands free Transporters:
Uses, Techniques, Demos and Safety.

The Moving Camera Lecture:
Practice & Aesthetics

Floor-to-Ceiling - non-stop!:
The $200 low-tech solution.
New Steadicam Accessories Debut!

Steadicam Merlin:
Uses, Techniques and the 'Magic Formula' for this precision handheld instrument. Agenda

See you!

Garrett and I are thinking about it... got to find the time. We'll see how this one goes. A similar one in Paris after IBC last fall went well.

Thinking...

Just came back from the masters re-union. Wonderful workshop, with steadi guys just talking, doing and looking at steadicam. Chris Fawcett's lecture on steadicam posture was amazing! Really gave us something to think about. Saw the lost GB footage also from the early days of steadi. Great fun!

I had a chance to see some new equipment, and with the strong request from my lovely wife, I ordered the.boxx microwave link system.

Thanks to everyone at the re-union. Specially Jerry, GB, Chris and Michael Hofmann.

A wife that strongly requests you throwing money after black boxes and other stuff with a price per kilogram well above 3000 Euro????

I know Mikael. What can I say? She's just great and she's got bigger balls than me when it comes to investing in gear. I love her!

Good seeing you at the workshop Mikael, and take care.
