A Steadicam Tribute: ‘The Art of Steadicam’

The Steadicam was invented by Garrett Brown back in the 70’s and is one of the most visually engaging shots that a filmmaker can use.

Larry Wright over at Refocused Media has put together an inspirational montage of some of the most iconic Steadicam shots from both film and television over the past four decades.

The Art of Steadicam from Refocused Media on Vimeo.

Here is what Larry had to say about the video:

I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of “top” clips over at steadishots.org, which are rated by the community. After locating what sources I could from the top 50 or so, I decided to stick with the order presented on the site (accurate as of March 1, 2013).

While I do hope you enjoy my video, there are many other clips that I was not able to source as well as many great clips that have yet to be rated into the “top” ranks, so please head over to steadishots.org and show your appreciation for the great service they provide.
