Workshop - NYC Area? Pilot?
Posted 12 February 2008 - 03:28 PM
1) How many in the NYC area want a beginner workshop? They say that if we get 6-9 people, they'll make it happen.
2) How applicable is the Flyer workshop for Pilot owners? Any issues I should be aware of?
3) Is there better way to see if folks are interested in a workshop?

2) The Flyer workshop will work out great for a Pilot owner. Mention ahead of time that you you'd like to bring your rig and it shouldn't be a problem.
3) This isn't a bad start. Maybe you can post on Craig's List, or advertise at local film schools?

This just seems to mirror the regular steadicam workshop site,
check out this website
which is where I learned that they will set up a workshop in a particular area if there is enough interest.
Am I missing something here?

Thanks! I didn't know he lives in New York. Good info.
I really doubt you will have any problem getting enough people for a workshop in NYC. Talk to Peter Abraham. He is the guy who teaches the workshops and he actually lives in new york.
steadicamflyer.com has his email - Thanks!
I attended Peter's Flyer workshop in Las Vegas last month to learn the Pilot. He took time to help me adjust the Pilot vest and center post which are a bit different than the Flyer. Outside of setting up the vest and balancing, the Flyer instruction translates to the Pilot.

I'd drop Peter an email... he may be using both the Flyer and the Pilot on the workshops. Thats what we intend to do here in the UK anyway.

In any case, I'll email the instructor again and see what he says.

I will be instructing the New York Flyer / Pilot Workshop. Details still being arranged. Many kudos to Dave for creating such positive inertia !!!! Keep an eye on the Tiffen Steadicam Workshops web site for all of the details as soon as they are locked in place. Registration will be as per the usual route.
Notice that both rigs are now shown in the name of the workshop. Because they are both lighter rigs, and their payload capacity overlaps to a degree, we have decided to couple them in the same 2-day intensive workshop.
Looking forward to seeing you all there,
Director of Technical Services
The Tiffen Company / Steadicam

He is looking at a Steadicam Workshop in the NY area in the next few months. Date to be announced within a day or so. ANYONE who wants in should email Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list. That way, he can insure that the people expressing interest on these threads actually get in. Once he has 9 names, the workshop is closed.
