Steadicam Merlin Used For "1%" Movie Trailer

Shot a movie trailer yesterday in 36 degrees celcius, but still loads of fun.
Here's the link to a behind the scenes clip on you tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkTQotLnos4

Fun!

The Merlin, along with that arm, looks as good/serious as the big rigs I see filming in New York all the time.

So where is the final movie trailer?
