noticed that things go in cycles? Good days, bad days, traffic jams, open highways? Recently there's been a wave of hand-held mania, and productions that should have been stabilized, either on tripods or by other means, are on the shoulder. That's great for imparting some energy or immediacy, but when the material calls for stability, balance, calmness, shakey-cam can work against you. This past week we've gotten phone calls asking about our Steadicam work again, so it's time for Remo and Shawn to strap on the vest and tune up the muscle memory. Things are starting to cycle back this way.
