In addition, when time permits, Mike also teaches Steadicam operating skills both on a one to one basis and with clients including Tiffen the manufacturers of the genuine Steadicam range.
“Mike’s ability to operate the Steadicam, without drawing attention to the fact that the camera is mounted on the device, is second to none. Using his sense of composition and movement, Mike is able to create a graceful and fluid dynamic that enables the Director of Photography to develop and obtain complicated set-ups that would take a considerable time using more conventional methods.”
