5 Day Steadicam Workshop. January 2008. London.

The GBCT (Guild of British Camera Technicians) are running another 5 Day steadicam workshop in starting January 14th 2008 at Panavision London.

The course will be taught by Peter Robertson, one of the most experienced Steadicam Operators and tutors in the business. His feature credits include Atonement, Harry Potter, Die Another Day, Bridget Jones Diary, Tomb Raider 2, The Beach, Hot Fuzz, About a Boy, Sahara, Notting Hill and many many more.... He will be ably assisted by Barney Davis, another experienced Operator and tutor. Peter has over 20 years of experience as a Steadicam Operator, and has taught many workshops in conjunction with the NSCTP (National Short Course Unit at the NFTS).

The teaching module of the course is based, historically, on the steadicam theories of Garrett Brown (the inventor) and Ted Churchill (an early pioneer of steadicam and operator of some repute who first formulated steadicam teaching methods). It demonstrates equipment from different manufacturers, showing the relative merits of each system without favouring one or other. It also places the role of the steadicam
operator within the role of the camera operator in general.

This intensive theoretical and practical course will provide training to a high professional level in the use of steadicam operation for use in feature film, documentary and television production. By the end of the workshop participants should be able to confidently assemble, balance and operate steadicam in various modes and configurations. Each day will consist of lectures, demonstrations and intensive practical exercises with various steadicam rigs.

It is suitable for experienced camera people looking to move into Steadicam, and new/intermediate operators looking to move up from lightweight systems to 'Big Rigs' for 16mm & 35mm camera systems.

The course has a maximum of 8 places, and there are a few still left. Get in touch with the GBCT office asap for more details.

Cost £750 for GBCT members, £1000 for non-members.

The course will attract Skillset subsidy for UK freelancers (www.skillset.org) of up to 70% of the course, travel & accomodation costs but applications for this have to be in 5 working days before the course starts so get your place booked ASAP!!
