Anyone check out the season premiere episode of Entourage last night?
The episode was shot as a documentary of the fake movie they are shooting in Columbia. At one point you watch as a series of Steadicam shots are filmed and also showing the Steadicam operator in a few shots. IMDB lists Marc Cole as a operator for them, so perhaps that was him.

It was a great epsiode, the nutty director gets in a huge fight with the DP on set and winds up beating him up and firing him, leaving the director to shoot the rest of the film.

I believe it was Greg Bubb that was in the episode. The credits listed Dan Kneece as the steadicam operator for the episode.

Worth mentioning...

The fact that our own Anthony Hardwick is one of the alternating Director of Photography on this Season.

Enjoy.

Brad, I think you're right. The operator wasn't Dan Kneece in the behind the scenes portion of the fake filming.

It's appropriate that Gregg get's to knock off a few of his 15 minutes of fame on screen for Entourage. He has done a lot for our craft, and is a great guy.

Am I the only one bothered by them intercutting an obvoius low mode shot (assuming it's from Dan Kneece) to Gregg doing the same arc in the "behind the scenes" in high mode? I guess they weren't worried about Steadicam Ops in the continuity department, or maybe I'm too picky!
