Don't know if you guys had already seen it but for those who've never seen these films, check it out:

http://zoomazooma.co...reeltruth1.html

and

http://zoomazooma.co...reeltruth2.html

Just saw them and laughed my ass off, it's all so true...it's frightening how they nailed it.
I wonder if all those directors,copywriters,producers,etc. would also get a laugh out of this

Peace, Ruben "The thruth is out there..." Sluijter

Hadn't seen the second one of those, thanks for posting Ruben!

The laughs get a bit more forced each time they do one, sadly. If you can hunt down the original "Truth in Advertising" clips that preceded both of these, it's worth it.

Ask and you shall receive Charles, all hail the mighty Google!

You may have to scroll down a bit to see the video but it's there.

Was just referencing these the other day--still huge laughs there.

Who's going to produce "Truth in Steadicam"...??!

" I look forward to sleeping with you. "

" Me too ! "

-cackle- God I'd forgotten all about this.

I've never seen Ted's A Day In The Life Of A Steadicam Operator. My understanding is that he nails it. Anyone have it?

That video continues to be the long-lost relic of the Steadicam world.

It's pretty great, especially since he's nowhere near the Steadicam the whole time!

Nope, I don't have a copy, it's been about 10 years since I've seen it I think. The only person that I can think of who was rumored to have a copy was Gene Taylor, who is out of the loop these days. The world really does need to see it though...

Hi Guys,
Isaww it at either the Soa workshop in 1991 or when Garrett came to Oz for a workshop. I am sure he has it, or perhaps it was Jerry Holway. It is a classic.

All the best
