I found that a bit offensive, I wonder what Jack thinks.

appreciated by a lot of guys and girls here.. (like memories)

Indeed. When I posted posted "A Day in the Life of a Steadicam Operator" it was with the intention of keeping Ted's memory and humor alive, not just for those of us who knew him but as much for those for whom he is little more than a name and a legend.

I did make sure to get Jack's blessing to do this. It would be nice to know if Christian did the same.

Great shirts. I wish someone would reproduce them in the US so they wouldn't be so damn expensive. I really hope all is on the up and up. If you look at the images the shirts have a copyright ted churchill logo on them, not that that means anything.

The copyright outrage is huge, but second to that does seem to be the price. Seems the person reprinting these shirts not only has no regard for Ted Churchill's memory, but also seems bent on charging through the nose.

I think about Ted many times and I have a lot of memories but I don´t feel comfortable with this,where the benefits from these t-shirt are going???.I think Ted was one of the biggest operators and he improved our operator tech a lot but I have never liked that the people use my "nostalgia" for make money.

Hey guys,

Christian Betz is a very honorable guy and I think if you guys knew him, you would say the same. Very friendly, helpful and fair. Does it matter who puts the copyright on the shirts? I'm glad it`s someone who is lounging in our business, rather than some "shmuck" that doesnt even know who Churchill was.

And if you care to find out more about Christian and his designed "Rig", click here.

For my part, I think I`m gonna get the yellow shirt at some point. ;)

Take care guys and RIP TC,

Peter

I don't want to say that Christian Betz it is not a honorable men,I love his topstage and I bought 5 of them but I thimnk these t-shirts are part of our history as comunity and don't like "remakes",if you don't have one,this time is strange to put a t-shirt with this story.
All the best and this only on opinion never the "only true".
All the best.

Hey Guys out there,
stop waisting time for spreading something! We did a lot of workshops here in Germany with Ted in the 1980 and 1990 and Ted belongs to
our old steadicam family here in europe (Jaques Monge, Mike Bartlett, Floris Sijbesma etc.) He gave me his graphics we designd a couple of shirts here
after his death his brother Jack gave me the permission to reprint "sometimes" the shirts. Belive to rework the graphics from the old handsfree program
till T-shirt printing cost a lot of time. If anybody out there is thinking about to get rich of t-shirts should get back in the famous bank business of
america. Let the thoughts on TED Churchill be and don't waist your time in spreading unknown b.s.
A very old friend of TED
