Birth Of A Steadicam-on-Segway Nation

camtransport_segway.jpg

Historians of the moving image take note:

The first commercial footage shot with the Handsfree-Transporter Cam Transport, wherein a Steadicam operator steers a modified Segway with his crotch, was a moving [sic] performance of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" by a Dutch marching band at the 2006 Nationale Taptoe in S'Hertogenbosch.

For aspiring Cam Transport users, the bar has been set very high indeed.

Meanwhile, I hope the second shoot will be at Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center; those fellas need some help with their camerawork pronto.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
