We are THRILLED to be playing host to such a stellar lineup of talent at this year’s ProFusion Imaging Expo. So much so that we want to introduce them to you – one by one!
Our first presenter needs no introduction to film buffs and filmmakers, alike… so, without any further ado:
Meet Garrett Brown
Best known as the Oscar-winning inventor of the Steadicam™, Brown has shot with it on nearly 100 movies, including: Rocky, The Shining , and Return of the Jedi. Garrett holds 50 patents worldwide for camera devices including Steadicam Merlin™ for camcorders, Skycam – the robot camera that flies on wires over sporting events, and Mobycam, Divecam, Flycam, et al, that pursue athletes worldwide. His new zeroG™ technology floats tools and reduces workplace injuries. In past lives Garrett has recorded for MGM as a folksinger, sold Volkswagens, directed TV commercials, and made films for Sesame Street. And his voice was the other half of that well-known ad-lib duo on radio for Molson and American Express. He is a member of the American Society of Cinematographers, the Directors Guild, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He has recently been inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Garrett’s Moving Camera lecture has been seen at film schools and festivals around the world.
Steadicam: The Moving Camera
Why is one moving shot better than another? How does one quiet little item rivet the audience and advance the plot, while another, even a grand flashy swoop, bores, distracts and sets us back? The kinetics, dynamics, psychology and narrative wallop of the moving camera – plus the daring artistry of camera operating –are the secret sauce of great moviemaking.
Videographers and aspiring Steadicam operators interested in a general overview of the Steadicam will not want to miss this event!
