hi there

since i'm new to this board and to operating a big hello to everybody.

now a short question concerning system setup -

i own a glidecam smooth shooter and had my first "smooth shoot" shoot last weekend -
no it turned out that the pictures are ok but far away from perfect -

especially i have a slight left-right movement during walks ...

i tried to increase weight on the sled but i'm not sure if this is the final solution ...

is it also a matter of walking technique ? are there some instruction dvds,
tutorials or links you could recommend ? i've search in this forum but haven't found the proper infos.

and workshops in my area are more than rare - for not to say not available :-)

greetings from vienna

hello andy...

you are right, that there in vienna are not really workshops any more (the filmschule did one i think every year). but in my way, i went to munic at sachtler academy for a workshop. i was practising a year before on my own. But what i learned there in 5 days :blink:

just because we have an sachtler artemis, you can go there without one too :rolleyes:

the link: http://www.sachtler-academy.de/ ... next workshop will be in november. i would advise you to go there! its worth the money!

greetings from linz

hi michael

nice to meet someone from the neighbourhood ;-)

acutally i'm from amstetten - not really far from linz ^^

well - i think i will attend such a workshop - unfortunatly november is a bit tight for me -
well i'll have a look when the next one starts
and for the moment i'll do a bit of practicing, trying - are there any other resources you
know to have a look at?

greetings from euratsfeld/amstetten ;-)

hello andy

i have been in st. pölten last friday to do a steadicam-job :)

one of the first things i dit was, that i got one day with an operator. he showed me a few things, so that you won't learn yourself things wrong from the beginning. very hard to come away from theese.

and the other thing is: practise - watch footage - practice again - watch footage again - cry a little bit about it ;)

so maybee if you have icq oder msn or something, maybee we can contact each other if you want :)

greets
