Hey guys just got my first job. Looking on your advice on it. Here it is.

I think we should do a weekend extra on Steady Cam use - the basics,
how much your set up cost, showing you using the camera and showing
what the footage looks like.

What kind of thinngs do you think I should go over exactly? also what things should directors know before wokring with steadicam? Like how far you can zoom in. Whats do most of you do when they want to hook wires up? do you just say no? Or just get a good wrangler?

also I need some good jokes on steadicam and such. heres what thier video look like most the time.

thanks guys

I enjoyed the video, very funny and nicely done.

You've answered all of your own questions. Try all of the ideas you propose and see how they work.

Except for some old quips from some older guys make up your own; the videos to date are clever enough.

I know this is an unrewarding answer but I don't know how to answer your questions other than to make you think of them.

"how far can you zoom in?" when is the picture too bad to use? Each of us answers that question differently on each shoot. Some days I'm a genius other days clearly in the middle of the bell curve.

Hey Kyle !!! Great to hear you're working that rig. Fun we had, trucking back and forth from the parents' house to the beach where that party was going on and back again.

Janice is spot-on. Sometimes we're ahead of the bell curve. Sometimes the bell falls onto us !

Stay in touch,
