Paddock Radical Options - a concept borne of necessity - to refine the beautiful and sublime Steadicam into something that professional operators desired - reliability, ruggedness, simplicity and modularity which then resulted in a rig that was also smaller, lighter and nimbler - George led the pack with SOC members Chris Haarhoff, Mark O'Kane, David Emmerichs and together they came up came up with the GPI PRO stabilizer. The SOC celebrates this great achievement with the 2009 Technical Achievement Award. George, Dave, Chris and Mark tells us the story in this fascinating video...
This is Red One Africa's Helix Gimbal affixed to My steadicam.Operating in one Axis it allows one to go from Hi mode to low mode in shot.Pretty neat.Also This Gimbal is hardy enough to take the Red Dragon with a Prime!Top top proper camera and lensing.
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.
