The Art of Steadicam

Wonderful to watch, even if it does end with possibly one of the most terrifying shots in film history.

Here is the blurb. "Invented by Garrett Brown in the early 70's, the steadicam shot -- or 'steadishot' -- has become one of the most dynamic and exciting forms of cinematography and is one of the most engaging visual techniques in a filmmaker's storytelling arsenal. I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of "top" clips over at, 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)."
