Introduction – A broad outline of the planned training:
Steadicam® is now a commonly used tool within the film and television industry, however it requires training and practice in order to produce good results. More than just a stabilizer, as a shooting system it is able to provide an individual style to the production often greatly desired by producers and directors. Additionally, complex moving scenes can not only be quicker to shoot, but also more dramatic by adding pace and dimension to the shot.
The Tiffen Steadicam Bronze Workshop is a unique opportunity for prospective operators to learn the use and application of Steadicam, concentrating on the lighter systems within the Steadicam product line. The workshop is very much hands-on with plenty of practical time actually wearing and using the system.
