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.
(Video needs to be watched on vimeo directly. Sorry for that.)
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.
