We're shooting a low budget music video September 4th in Detroit and are in need of a steadicam owner/operator. Please give me a reel and pricing. I should also mention that we will be shooting on the RED ONE, 6-8 hours....

I live in Grand Rapids, MI but will be in Mount Pleasant, MI by that time. Both places are equi-distant from Detroit anyways. I'm hoping to have my new ActionCam RED Edition by then, but if not, my loaner rig will support a RED One. If you want low budget, I'm your man, but I don't have my hands on any of my footage as of yet.

Here is my disclaimer: I'm fairly new as an operator, having worn gear for a full work day on only 3 occasions (2 of them at a Tiffen Steadicam Workshop). By Sept. 4th, I'll have shot the first College Football game of this season and possibly part of a University Admissions video.

I'm enthusiastic and dedicated to the trade, so you better believe I have a rig on, practicing every available day. Peter Abraham can confirm my level of ability as he saw in the workshop. Like I said, my rates are low budget right now. I'm just paying bills and building a solid reel, so I'll happily take any experience I can get. All my info is below if you are interested in talking further..
