Hi all,

I'm looking for a written guide to steadicam operating.
Balancing, static/dynamic, arm adjustments, handling and that kind of stuff.
I'll be giving a workshop in the near future and am trying to find different articles I could use for my students.

Who can help me out ? :unsure:

You can mail me at info@cameracollege.nl

Thanks,

Maurice Bossers.

Hi Maurice,

ask Jerry Holway. He's working on a book about operating a steadicam and he has already wrote a lot of helpful stuff.

Good luck.

Answer is easy; you don't. I just want to provide my students with some extra literature, they can read at home.

Some people think that I was asking for information for training students at cameracollege, where I do most of my work, however this is not the case: The workshop that I've given was to colleagues.
At cameracollege we don't do the training for steadicam ourselves, yet.

Just to get some of the confusion out of the way because I've received a few nasty Dutch emails, and I must say that I'm quite suprised at how people can draw their own conclusions and then completely treat you like dirt.
Great colleagues they are...

Wow Maurice, That sounds appaulling.
To think somebody would take offense at you wanting to teach something to others is quite frankly maddness.
Do you have much experiance with steadicam ?

Hi Matt,

I've been working with both steadicam and glidecam for 10 years now.


Cheers,

Maurice.
