Hey All,

I'm currently watching on the Dutch MTV a rerun of the VMA of 2005.
2 days ago I watched some shots from the 2006 edition on several european MTV's but did not notice sofar
any Steadicam shots performed.

The 2005 edition is full of Steadicam shots.., so did I miss something in 2006 ?

Just wondering,

Fly save,

Erik

There were a total of 3 Steadicam Op's working that night. Curtis Dunne, Tori Livia, and myself.

Was a fun night !

Did you happen to see Osvaldo's "Friend" Sixx rear his ugly head yet again!
I wasn't watching the show but heard.
You can actually see this bozo grab the mike away from the award winner.
http://www.mtv.com/ontv/vma/2006/
Under Music videos on the left under the video screen choose music video

awards on demand (2nd on the list)
Then scroll to the bottom. It's the second clip from the bottom called "Panic."


I want an awards presenter to be armed with a tazer and the next time this
clown shows up the presenter Zaps him! Now that would be entertaining.
Give Oz his money back!!

I happened to turn on the TV just moments before that award and saw
that guy.
They edited out some of it too.
I wonder what he said.
I rewinded it and saw Jennifer Lopez telling him off but they cut
the sound by that point.

On a different note, how GREAT was "The Killers" closing act?
Them boys have some talent!!

That doesn't look like Sixx, He's not tall enough first off.

Speaking of the VMA's... Check out this performance from 1995? From about 1.16 onwards. Name that camera shy Steadicam op! Some very nice work!

MTV shortened (edited) the clip on MTV website!!!
They did have the unedited verrsion as of yesterday morning. Funny that they did that.
The guy said his name was Sixx, said that MTV didn't want to do "his" show or some such non-sense
then plugged his website. http://mtv6000.com/ that's when security finally showed up and took him off stage.
anyway, back to steadicam talk....

That is very very tidy operating on the part of Mr. David Eastwood. Very tidy indeed.

Also that cable guy, wow.... tucking the looped cable and pulling it back from under Jacko.... gosh.... They rehearse that do they?

Thanks for that, but it still did not show everything that was said.
Even in that clip you can clearly see that they cut the audio to the mics as J. Lo is talking to
the guys of Panic at the Disco and you can't hear her. And the guy from Panic starts talking
and you still can't hear him, the first thing you hear when they turn the mics back on is, "trying to steal our thunder."

Also, on the MTV RE-broadcast, you see a different camera angle than what they showed on that YouTube clip and you clearly see J.Lo saying something to that Sixx guy as the security is leading him away.

Interesting none the less. I like David's thought, they should of tazed the guy on stage on live TV
now that would of been really entertaining and would surely give guys like that something to think about
before they pull a stunt like that again.

Hey Jeff,
"Mr. David Eastwood, the real magic is his cable guy, Charlie Fernandez!"

Sitting next to Charlie and Joey D here at JKL. Charlie says thanks. Apparently Eastwood never says thanks.
