So this is very last minute, but here is goes. I may be teaching a steadicam class Thursday nights for the next 4 weeks at NYU. There are 4 opening left. We need to fill one more. Enrollment ends tomorrow.

This is an intro class and is not meant to replace the SOA week long course. There is less equipment and is aimed at the smaller rigs. I will bring my rig, PRO2, g-70 arm, and Klassen vest in for a day or two. If you have a rig feel free to bring it in at your own risk.

X34.9543 / $795
Continuing Education: Film, Video and Broadcasting

A vital tool in today's filmmaking industry, Steadicams offer greater stabilization for handheld shots, giving directors and camera operators greater physical freedom while providing additional stylistic choices. Ideal for shooting both narratives and documentaries, Steadicams provide another creative option in the art of cinematography. The Steadicam has helped operators create some of the most memorable tracking shots in film history, including Rocky Balboa's victorious climb up the Philadelphia Museum steps, Henry Hill's impressive Copacabana entrance in Goodfellas, and the chase scene through the snowy maze in The Shining. This course is for experienced directors of photography or camera operators (shooting film or DV) who would like to add Steadicam to their skill set.

If your interested sign up today.

Hi Aaron

I do attend a class of directing at SCPS long time ago (it was beginning of 2001), I do have great time there expecially with two great teachers like Gary Gasgarth and Marc DeRossi. They probably won't remember me but it has been my baptize in film and tv industry. Still greatly thanksful.

And it's in Washington Square. Marvellous. I wish I live in NYC to attend this workshop.

Thanks, it looks like the class isn't going to happen this semester after all. I'll let you know when they offer it.

Matteo, I did under grad film at NYU and loved it. It was a great place to attend college.
