Product description

Review

"The Steadicam® Operator's Handbook is the most comprehensive and complete text available on Steadicam equipment and operation. It is essential reading for beginners and experienced operators alike."
-Dan Kneece, President of the Society of Steadicam Operators

"Precision is key when it comes to pulling off a successful Steadicam shot, and it is also the best word to describe what makes The Steadicam Operatorâ?Ts Handbook essential reading. Written by veteran operators Jerry Holway and Laurie Hayball, it is a treasure trove of specific, detailed information regarding the theory and practice of Steadicam operation.Intelligent but not dryly academic, and complete but never overwhelming, The Steadicam Operatorâ?Ts Handbook is a must." - Jim Hemphill, American Cinematographer

Over the past 18 years, Jerry has been the head instructor at more than 60 week-long Steadicam workshops worldwide. He is generally regarded―along with Garrett Brown, inventor of the Steadicam―as one of the premier Steadicam workshop instructors in the world.
