Invented by Garrett Brown in the early 70's, the steadicam shot -- or 'steadishot' -- has become one of the most dynamic and exciting forms of cinematography and is one of the most engaging visual techniques in a filmmaker's storytelling arsenal.
I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of "top" clips over at http://www.steadishots.org, which are rated by the community. After locating what sources I could from the top 50 or so, I decided to stick with the order presented on the site (accurate as of March 1, 2013).
While I do hope you enjoy my video, there are many other clips that I was not able to source as well as many great clips that have yet to be rated into the "top" ranks, so please head over to http://www.steadishots.org and show your appreciation for the great service they provide.

A Piñata manages to escape her destruction from a birthday party but after falling in love, she realizes that what she really wants is to be beaten.
Through a fantastic story about love and pleasure, the short film explores the masked violence that we live day by day, the prohibitions, and the rules that determine our intimate and social behaviour to fulfill our personal desires.
Dulce Dolor is a metaphor for the honesty that everyone should have to himself or herself. Just like a sadomasochistic Piñata, it doesn’t matter how hard we try to suppress our instincts and our true self, it will always surface in our infinite quest for happiness, desire and pleasure. Even when the fulfillment of our deepest desires involve our self-destruction.
