Hi there,

I'm following my wife out to India for three years in October and I'm hoping to carry on operating out there. At the moment I don't have my own rig, but may well purchase one next year.

In the meantime I was hoping to carry on dry-hiring, but I don't expect Joe Mac's going to want to keep sending his rigs out to Delhi, so if anyone can reccommend any owner-operators in India who might be willing to dry hire me a rig every know and then, that would be ace.

Cheers,

Colin Elves.

Good Lord Collin,
I just got back from shooting in Delhi, two words, Organized Chaos ! . . . . .LOL . . . .

I was asking around if there were any other steadicam operators in town that anyone knew of and at least in the circles I was in, it was always NO, hopefully that is not the case and you become "the guy" in Delhi. Good luck and hopefully you will never have to shoot in the Spice Market of Old Delhi, breathing becomes an issue . . . .LOL . . .

All the best fly safe
