The use of a steadicam allows to create astonishing visual and emotional moving shots and offers freedom to the director and the DP to place and move the camera where and when they want in order to tell their story. 

Shots like the  3 min. Copacabana shot from Goodfellas (1990, Dir. Martin Scorsese) or the 5 min. Beach at Dunkirk shot from Atonement (2007, Dir. Joe Wright), the shots in The Shining (1980, Dir. Stanley Kubrick) are some examples for great storytelling shots and their influence on the perception of the film.

Betz-Rig with Steadicam Volt Upgrade

From January 2019 I will have an upgrade on my rig with the steadicam Volt™, a horizon and tilt axis stabilizer on the gimbal of the steadicam.

Windy conditions, complex moves,... will be no problem anymore and the Volt allows to concentrate more on the shot and framing itself.

Steadicamp 2018

Over the last 5 days I had an intense steadicam workshop with some of the best steadicam operators in the industry (Larry McConkey, Peter Robertson, Alex Brambilla, Patrick de Ranter and Valentin Monge).

It was a great experience, I learned so much and met really amazing people.
