The caption from the ASC magazine (September 2007) for the same photo reads: "Steadicam/B-camera operator Florian Emmerich and a sound man stay in step with Damon."

The article related to that photo printed in the Feb 22, 2008 issue of USA Today is about the high costs and risks of insuring films. Pretty interesting and worth a quick read if you can find a copy or track it down online.

I shot (lit) an EPK interview with her a couple weeks ago. There are some people who radiate through the lens. Helen is one of them. I would have had to try to make her look bad.

The operator is Dave Eastwood
Last nights Oscars

He makes it all look easy . . . .still don't know why a show like that won't use the Link wireless system . . .?

Sorry to call you out but that's Hector. Impressive that a 63 year old still humps the beast through five days of rehearsal including a 3 1/2 hour dress the day of show. However there is a partial picture of Dave in todays L.A. Times.

You know it wasn't me. I always wear a cap. Even at the Oscars! Besides I was hiding in a corner. Torn meniscus, can't squat for awhile.

The white hair was indeed my mentor and friend Bill Philbin. I doubt anyone would argue that he is the best handheld operator to ever pick up a television camera. At least no one with knowledge of what we do!

As for the wireless, I asked Hector why they were not using it and he just rolled his eyes. I guess that means money. Hard to believe that's an issue on this show. We had 22 cams this year counting the jib outside. How about the tower cam in the pit? Interesting move at the end of "Falling Slowly." Eastwood is now vending them as well.
