commercial shoot in Malibu July 18, 19, 20. Need an AC with steadicam experience. Lots of it. Must be able to dynamically balance a rig quickly. Call Dave at 808-371-3540 or reply to this post or hit me at

you shouldnt be asking your AC to dynamically balance the steadicam. thats the operators job.

That's a very good point, especially if the A.C. has never worked with the operator before and has no idea how they like the sled set up.

Could be someone who is renting a Steadicam and needs it setup for him.

that completely slipped by my, i should have noticed it too in my earlier comment - if i was operating, mine or rented, id want to balance it myself. its ok to get help in a certain case but none the less its the ops job.
Plus in Brissy i dont think you could rent a rig without an operator...

But I doubt someone is getting work as a steadicam operator if they don't know how to set a rig up. It's a bit counter-intuitive.
