It depends. do you have the steadicam master series? I have seen it and there are some good pointers in general. Like the title says, Advanced Steadicam Techniques. I think the price is a little steep for what you get. If you are hoping to get detail 'how- you-use-a-rig' type of instruction video, then I'm sorry to disappoint you.

Probably Charles P. definately has something to say here. :)

There is one tape I truely love. It's an instructional video Jerry did together with Ted Churchill before his death. The instructional video was done when the EFP first came out way back. don't remember the exact year. Now that was a video worth buying. I've learned so much viewing that video, even though I didn't have the EFP.

Ted did search a terrific job in his explainations it's a joy just watching him at work. Both Ted(at the time) and Jerry are wonderful at what they do. It's a joy watching true pros at what they do best.

If I don't answer your reply immediately then it is because I am not at home. I'm on vacation and just logged on at an internet cafe temporarly. will respond if I get another chance though.

I actually haven't seen the tape in question, but I have taught with Jerry and he knows his stuff.

Speaking of tapes...still planning on cranking one out yourself, Charles? I hope you realize you've already got preorders.

It's in the works, John. Dealing with the business end of this project is a whole new ball of wax for me. After the New Year things should start in earnest.

Oh yeah. Taking advantage of the multiple angle feature bigtime (it's not just for porn anymore. I mean, I hear they use that a lot for porn. That's what I hear. Oh boy).
