Ave Maria! While I was researching Steadicams and Glidecams on the internet, I came across Chris Fawcett, a steadicam operator out of Amsterdam, Netherlands. I emailed him some of my questions, and he responded in a way I wasn't really expecting; he took me serious and gave me his full attention. I told him we'd be in Amsterdam and asked if we could stop by? So on one of the days that we had partially open I called him. He made us some good coffee, gave us tips on how to operate a steadicam; what's good for the back and what's not, showed and let us try some of his very expensive media equipment, including his "Steadiseg". He also gave us a tour of his side of Amsterdam, took us to a deli and bought us lunch. Fantastic sandwiches, washed down with a cold coke. Chris and a friend of his invented a knee controller for the Segway that makes it possible to operate a camera in a very versatile way while moving. The day that we were driving back to England, Chris was shooting a music video on the streets of Amsterdam for one Holland's top music artist. May our Lady watch over and protect our new atheistic friend. Ave Maria! To Download Audio go to
