Those of us who were fortunate enough to be helping teach that workshop were constantly looking at each other and shaking our heads at the anecdotes and techniques that Larry shared that week. I think we may well have gotten more out of it than the students! One of them took this footage and I begged to make a copy--came across the 8mm tape last year and thought it was worth combining with the actual footage and sharing with everybody. I also use it as part of the 2-day Steadicam Guild Master Class I teach from time to time, along with a number of other McConkey classics. To me the kind of focus, ingenuity, attention to detail and political savvy that Larry embodies is hugely inspiring.
I would just like to THANK YOU Charles for making the effete to put it all together for the world to see .I also have been showing the clip to film /steadicam students the footage of how Larry is able to expand on the directors vision and working with the actors to make the shot work for everyone .
Thank you again
