Isn't that what "General Discussion" or "Journals" is for?

So yes, an "Aesthetics" section should be part of SteadicamForum, as we are Camera operators and not just a different breed of grips.


Hi Kareem,
With due respect to you as a steadicam operator (and I am aware of your great reputation), I find it odd that you should imagine that grips have no sense of aesthetics. I know of many grips who move on from "operating the operator" to being the operator. Good dolly grips understand the aesthetics of operating a shot. They know where they need to be with the crane or dolly, and why they need to be there in order for the shot to work.
I understand the frustration of rental houses trying to muscle in on the territory of the local operators, but anyone who has worked with good grips would find your statement a little jarring.
If you work as a conventional operator (as well as steadicam) I think you would agree.

after 2 years of operating this tv add come back to my mind, don't know if it fits the discussion about the tool being art in itself or part of a bigger dream... but here's a good connection among the two I think...

for not german speaking as I am at the end the voice goes... " HP and Porsche work entirety in order to return the life of the wind better.."

p.s. to me one of the best tv add EVER
