If you love filmmaking, you will love this 10-minute montage of some of the best steadicam shots in cinema history. It’s definitely missing some great long takes, but it’s a great summary of good uses of this shot, invented by Garrett Brown in 1971.
I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of “top” clips over at steadishots.org, which are rated by the community. After locating what sources I could from the top 50 or so, I decided to stick with the order presented on the site (accurate as of March 1, 2013).
While I do hope you enjoy my video, there are many other clips that I was not able to source as well as many great clips that have yet to be rated into the “top” ranks, so please head over tond show your appreciation for the great service they provide.
