The camera department at TV3 are undergoing Steadicam training to become more skilled at handling the stabilizer.
With the FA Cup 2015 finals just around the corner, the team at TV3 are working at providing more value in their shots of the national football match.
TV3, our national TV station, has some of the most experienced cameraman in the country. It was an honor for me to be their trainer. They have been covering the FA Cup for the past month and they are looking to give their best for the finals.
Each match lasts 45 minutes with a short break in between. A Steadicam operator for a sports event like this must remain on the field and fully suited up, with a camera that weighs in excess of 10 Kg, under the relentless sun.
I have filmed physically intensive reality shows and feature film as a Steadicam operator and I know how taxing it is on your body. My respects go out to the operators at TV3. We wish you all the success in this weekend’s finals.
