The 3-day silver workshop in Sydney follows on from two highly successful 5 ½ day Gold workshops in Australia and Malaysia over the last two years, where the objective was to enhance camera operator technique by adding stabiliser control to their employable skill set.
Lead instructors for the courses are all highly experienced, working Steadicam operators/cinematographers for more than 20 years. They have all been instructors on previous Steadicam Gold Workshops in Asia and Europe and include Harry Panagiotidis from South Korea.
Harry Panagiotidis comes with hours of on-air footage, shot on Steadicam for every type of production from Feature film and commercial work, to drama, documentary, soaps, corporate, reality and multi-camera sports production.
The Australian 3-Day Steadicam Silver Workshop will be held from July 31 – Aug 2, in Sydney (venue TBA) at a student cost of $1500 USD which includes all equipment, lunch, dinner, course materials. Lead instructor is Harry Panagiotidis from South Korea. Accommodation is NOT included, but local hotel recommendations will be given to applicants.
All workshops are a great opportunity to operate the latest high capacity Steadicam systems (Zephyr, Archer 2, Shadow and Ultra 2) with instructors following a syllabus approved by Steadicam inventor Garrett Brown and evolved over the last 20 years to enable rapid instruction.
Silver workshops are designed for students with existing camera experience looking to expand their career options by adding stabilisation operation to their armoury, and are equally designed for working Steadicam operators seeking to advance or add to their Steadicam skill set. Numbers are generally between 8 – 12 students.
