Advancing more and more with every lesson with @steadicamlessons as a camera operator! This is the next level for videographers and will be a secure option for a solid income! One of the challenges in doing videography right now is the access people have to iPhones and Samsung’s that shoot 4K. There are always advantages to people hiring a videographer instead of shooting their own content, but the film industry is always something that will be around and has to be done at the highest level to succeed and be a feature that is in theaters and makes money. Ultimately, there is money to be made on both ends but I really predict more videographers crossing the path and be coming camera operators! • #explorepage#explore#camera#cameraoperator#steadicam#steadicamoperator#steadicamlife
The nature of the industry I’m in is a funny thing... sometimes you get a phone call last minute to provide your Steadicam services for a project that has little information and is very hush hush - this was one of those projects.
It turned out that I was on the set of Kanye’s new movie ( Jesus is King ). I am so grateful for the incredible opportunity to be a part of this project. It was probably the most challenging Steadicam shoots I’ve been on; long takes with complicated movements involving architectural structures over some tough terrain.
This was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am grateful to be apart of it. Go check out the movie in select theaters and Imax theaters starting 10/24/19
Huge thanks to @mharrisonfilms for the call!!!
Here’s the 2nd pass for the Kembe X voices music video with @jonprimo1 and @ihavethedinero Navigating the same tight spaces but this time walking super slow made it even harder to hide any imperfections. Sit on @arri#arrialexa

today I’m finally debt free. it took me four years and three months to pay off my first (dare I say last) camera package. what a journey it has been. The ARRI AMIRA is still my favorite build when it comes to handheld operating. As a young girl trying to be a DP (who was a terrible AC 😬) and needing a way to legitimize myself - owning an ARRI definitely helped. I feel like I’m still sometimes known as the girl with the AMIRA. So many happy moments from this purchase. And of course - so many tough moments too. I’ve definitely went below the minimum I’m required to have in the bank a few times. But the worst moment had to be when my bank account hit the negatives. That little moment of having nothing was a pretty surreal feeling. And then of course I’ve heard it all from “oh you should’ve got the mini - it would make way more money” to “you should’ve bought lenses... that would be better in the long run.” But it was never about making the most money or total longevity of the equipment... for me it was a way to set myself apart in this the competitive world. And just because you’re hired for a job originally because of gear - it won’t be the gear that gets you that second call. I’ve felt admired and I’ve felt judged and one of those feelings definitely stands out more. But in a world where you can’t please everyone - you have to please yourself and I love this camera and I really don’t think I’d be where I am (wherever that may be) with out it.
