Description

The next best thing to an intensive training workshop on how to use the Steadicam® and become a successful owner-operator, this book brings together interviews and instruction by the world's premier Steadicam professionals to get you up and running with your rig and to improve. The revised edition offers video interviews and footage showing the Steadicam in action on the book's companion website bringing this instruction one step closer to in-person training. Learn all aspects of Steadicam operating in one comprehensive package with hours of video on the website and over 1300 full-color photos and illustration.

Both informational and inspirational, THE STEADICAM® OPERATOR'S HANDBOOK moves from the physics and balancing of a Steadicam, through a series of step-by-step line dances and practice shots, to the most personal aspects of filmmaking-how individual operators make creative and practical decisions using this unique camera setup.

The book discusses the wide array of equipment and accessories currently available, and it also illustrates the latest operating techniques and tricks, a variety of strategies for working with others, and the business side of a Steadicam career, from buying your best rig to negotiating deals with producers and unit production managers.

Also included are observations and anecdotes-inspirational, funny, instructive, and cautionary-written by a number of other experienced Steadicam operators around the world, including the legendary inventor of the Steadicam himself, Garrett Brown. THE STEADICAM® OPERATOR'S HANDBOOK is both a master class and a master reference for all camera operators and directors who want to move the camera well.
