Hi! My name is Jimmie and I am working on a school essay about steadicam. This project is for a course at the University, dalarna in sweden.

Im writing this essay to get an answer of what have changed from the beginning of steadicam until now. To do this examination I will look at a scene from The shining and one from Kill bill vol1. I will try to get a conclusion of what have changed in the way to use a steadicam between 1976 - 2007

I also wanna find out how the steadicam gonna develop in the future, both technical and visual.

My questions is:
Where can I find books/articles/dvds/homepages about steadicam?
Where can I find material about the steadicam scenes in The shining, kill bill?

sorry for my bad english ;)

lots of info on this site to sift through.

keep in mind that while the steadicam has been manufactured by other companies and has many different looks and sizes, in essence they are all the same. gimbal, sled, arm, vest. the physics of the game has not changed.
