I am not a Steadicam operator, but sometimes I fake it!
In the late '90s I participated in a Steadicam workshop, which lead to operating on short films, music videos, and local commercials. After a few years of experimenting with the craft I took a break. Operating resumed in 2013. Summer 2014 I flew Steadicam at the X-Games in Austin, working for ESPN.
