Hi,

I got my steadicam just over a month ago, and by some complete coincidence I was asked to do some steadicaming on a low budget film. I said ok, but im not very good yet. They didnt seem to worry about the fact that im a complete novice and got me down to shoot for them.

so far I have done some walkie-talkie shots in the reverse missionary position. As I mentioned in the other post in the follow focus section, focus was an issue but was actualy not as bad as we thought. Used a 24mm lens at F5 focus set at about 7 feet and it was sharp all the way.

The director is really happy, which makes me very happy. It was blowing a gale but I got the gaffa to hold the parcel shelf up from the car to block the wind, which did the job and the end result was quite good, horizon was consistent framing was pretty still and my stop at the end was smooth with no flying up to the sky. The director was so pleased he revised the schedule to build more steadicam stuff in and he wants me for more films he is working on :-D
