Steadicam® is now a commonly used tool within the film and television industry. However it requires training and practice in order to produce good results. More than just a stabilizer, as a shooting system it is able to provide an individual style to the production often greatly desired by producers and directors. Additionally, complex moving scenes can not only be quicker to shoot, but also more dramatic by adding pace and dimension to the shot.
Delivered in partnership with Tiffen and supported by Progressive Broadcast Hire (Glasgow) and BBC Studios, this course is a unique opportunity for working camera operators to learn the use and application of Steadicam within the film and television world.
During the course, you will use the larger rigs from the Zephyr up to the M-1. The course covers all basic Steadicam techniques and looks at blocking out shots, compositional aspects and timing.
The course is very hands-on with plenty of practical time actually wearing and using the system. Delivered at BBC Studios in Dumbarton, where the continuing drama River City is shot, course participants will have the opportunity to use the system in a variety of filming contexts.
