If anyone caught this week's episode of "The Simpsons", I hope you noticed the nod to McConkey's shot from "Goodfellas". If anyone missed it, it's up on SteadiShots:


It's quite interesting to see a simple animated attempt at recreating the Steadicam look.

G'Day All

I sometimes wonder will I sit back one day and think wow, I have made it. When will that be, how will I know I have made it. Will there be a bit of equipment named after me, or a famous shot that everyone talks about, maybe I will be the richest or the poorest, or I will have fancy letters after my name....


When the simpsons rip off one of my shots I will sit back and know I have made it! Very funny to see that great shot in cartoon form. Thanks also for going to the effort of posting that. Steadishots is an awesome website. Constant additions make it a great site to always keep an eye on.

Well done, as you were!
