Hi there Guillermo,
We all have days like that. I don't know how many time I've walked someone to a table, sit down, and then the director wants to gluide through the table top to a CU reaction from someone else. In their pre prod they think of the steadicam as a camera spirited around by a magic wand.
One of the finer points of operating and especially steadicam is being the diplomat. You picked up straight away that the director did not know how to use the steadicam or you properly. Thats where you have to be able to teach him what amazing images and emotions it can create. If you have been able to show him ways of geting what he wants and to rethink ideas without him feeling a fool or worse, a confrontation, then he goes home thinking "Guillermo Nespolo is a smart guy and an asset to my filmaking." If you do that, he will call you again. He may also frustrate you again too, but that is all part of it.
Remember its our job to help them to understand. Also remember once you know the rules you can break a few for the right reasons. I have done some things that are against everything in the steadicam "handbook", but I got the shot the director wanted. Thats what counts.
Don't beat yourself up my freind.
All the best
Macca

PS I still have the Arri 3 lo-mode bracket. I've left you a note in the for sale section.

no no I meant details on being able to get the shot! Fletcher mentioned that soon it will be possible to get the shot done and you mentioned that Howard from mk-v told you, so I was just curious. Plus I think it's a glandular thing with Triangleman :D
