Steadicam at PWP

Long time staffer and PWP Director of Photography Tom MaCoy is no longer just a certified Steadicam Operator, he is now a Steadicam Owner/Operator. This means that PWP and our clients will have even greater access to high quality dynamic video.
For those unfamiliar, Steadicam is a Academy Award Winning invention by Westchester, PA based Garret Brown. Early famous shots include the Rocky Steps sequence and multiple sequences in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.
Never ones to be amazed only by the ability of technology, we are looking forward to deploying the Steadicam in future productions where the added storytelling value of moving camera will increase the visual and emotional impact of our shot choices.
