Hi Mike,

I bought this tape from BH Photo (90 bucks, ouch!) It's a 50 min tape hosted by Jerry Holway, focusing mainly on live television work (working with the cable, setting up the triax, tally light tips, removable and fixed floor marks, studio survey, shot design, working as a one man band, low-mode stuff, etc), all done with a Steadicam Master. It also give balancing, electronics set up and safety tips.

I don't know what this tape means for an experienced operator, but for an "advanced newbie" like me, it was very interesting. Mine is gonna be on Ebay soon. I'll let you know if you're interested.

What this tape also teach you is that you WANT Jerry Holway to be your instructor for your next workshop.

Thanks Eric, I now have one on its way. No one responded, so went ahead and purchased anyway. Thanks for giving me an idea of what was on it!
