Steadicam inventor Garrett Brown gave his renowned Moving Camera lecture on its use in cinema, in Japan last month. The lecture is relevant to Steadicam but it also covers a more general theme for all cinematographers. The event was hosted by Tiffen partner and Steadicam experts Gin-Ichi, and held at the Tokyo headquarters of NAC Rentals.
Attendees came not only from the Steadicam community in Japan, but included cinematographers and directors of photography; all of whom were held rapt for the two hours of the lecture and the Q&A session with Garrett. The day culminated with snacks, drinks, socialising and industry chat. Garrett’s next stop was instructing at the first ever Steadicam Gold Workshop in Japan.
