Doc's Steadiest work...
Posted 11 April 2004 - 09:53 PM
We had a big stunt one night.
They wanted to try and get one more camera in there.
So, Doc had this plate to attach his rig to a head.
So, I teased him about how this was the steadicam's 'Steadiest' work !!!!
Was a fun 3 weeks, aside from all the storm coverage we had to shoot.
3 day/nights at the beach under RAIN bars....
then the tank with the Libra as well..... we even had the wetsuits on it was sooo wet.
'Livin the Dream !!!' they say.
Here's proof of Doc's steadiest work to date.
Hope all are well.
I miss the Steadi world, but my back is feeling much better now that I just turn the 'wheels'.....
Happy Easter to all......

The "Cat Griller" mounts the camera plate to my Ronford quick release plate. Very handy to have in the AKS bag. I reccomend it to all, available from Baer-Bel.
Thanks for posting that photo, Kurt. Miss you. You're probably still not dry.
Happy Passover, Easter and an early happy Kwanza to all,

but that cat griller looks like u need an allen key to fix it.
i was thinking of getting some one to do some drill lyposuction on my base and cut out as much needless metal as possible.. but at best i loose 100g......

Still not dry is right !!!!! Damn, that was alot of rain.
It was a fun 3 weeks. Tucker's a fun director to work with.
He was our main director/Producer on Skin, so I'd worked with him for 6 months before this.
We'll see what happens with 'Point Pleasant'......
btw, the Steadi-Panahead was a great angle on the stunt as well.
The only camera we had on the 'other side' to cut to.

you can spec the Catgriller with Kip Lock if you like that, dont think there's any price difference. Just that many prefer not to have it as it can get in the way a bit. I have Kip locks all over my mod 111 rig and they dont bother me at all. There are more elegant engineering solutions but it gets expensive. I am not totally convinced about this speed of getting the rig on to a tripod thing, its good to slow things down a bit sometimes for a breather.
Funnily enough we used the Catgriller in Catford today. Just hope we dont have to use it in The Isle of Dogs or Barking !
If you want to loan a Cat griller or two for a while to try it out give me a ring.
Hope you are having a good Easter
