Birth Of A Steadicam-on-Segway Nation

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.
