I was just wasting time on youtube the other night and came across a steadishot I havent seen since I was a kid.

It's from "The magic of David Copperfield" from '89. Now, the last time I saw it, I was more into the magic stuff than how it was photographed.

Larry McConkey has a "Cameo" at 2:15 and the long tracking shot starts at 2:45

Watch the whole clip though, it's pretty cool and soooooo '80's

Take a look at:



Running, Stairs, 2 x lift rides, explosives, and all that while being connected to one very long cable....

That was shot in Charlotte, NC; I lived there at the time and a good friend of mine was the stills photographer on the shoot. Nice 80's hair!

That's where he hides the keys.
....and the potion he used to cast the spell on Claudia Schiffer.


I'm guessing this means Larry knows how it was done. However, I hear the penalties are severe for spilling the beans. Anyway, I'll get it on SteadiShots in the very near future.
