Drama/Soap – Emmerdale [ITV] – Steadicam

Emmerdale – Steadicam Operator

I am occasionally asked by ITV to operate Steadicam for Coronation Street and Emmerdale. In April, it was back to the Emmerdale village near Leeds, for a day of beautiful sunshine – and some of Yorkshire’s finest gale force winds! Cameras here are Sony HD cabled (fibre) and coverage included walk-and-talks and set pieces…where the weather permitted!

Crimewatch – Steadicam Operator

I was once again invited back to the BBC Wales studios at Cardiff for studio presentation of the monthly Crimewatch programme. As usual, the Steadicam operates on triax cable, camera 1 of 6, with autocue LCD mounted above the lens. My tally/cue light repeater is an essential aid for this programme for the presenter links. The new studio layout is a pleasure to work with, and feels more open…and less easy to get lost in!

Lord Mayor’s Show – Steadicam Segway Operator

For the second year, I was invited back for the BBC’s 13-camera coverage of the Lord Mayor’s Show in Central London. The Sony P1 RF camera package was again provided by Broadcast RF, and this year I operated with the sled hard mounted to the Segway, as there was no requirement for any operating dismounted. Once again, the challenging task of navigating around the parade was dealt with. Children, animals, torrential rain, Steadicams, Segways and Jimmy Jibs…it can only be the Lord Mayor’s Show!

OB – General Election, Downing Street [BBC/World Feed] – Steadicam

General Election, Downing Street – Steadicam Operator

On the results day for the General Election 2015 I was at Downing Stree, Central London for the main host broadcast news coverage of proceedings – which included 5 cameras – and the Prime Minister’s speech outside Number 10. A very early start and tense atmosphere marked the day, and it was a privilege to see the day unfold within the ‘Westminster bubble’. Some quite incredible results were coming in by the minute, and it felt like a truly historical day, a landmark for politics in our country. An RF camera was supplied and coverage included arrivals and departures, the Prime Minister David Cameron’s arrival and subsequent speech.

Six Nations Rugby – Jimmy Jib Operator

I was at Murrayfield, Edinburgh for the culmination of the 6Nations 2015 including the trophy lift at the end of the match. I was operating an 18ft Jimmy Jib, and coverage included pre-match pres for BBC [domestic feed] and then during the game, crowd reactions and reverse angle behind the sticks [world feed], followed by the trophy lift and post-match celebrations…after a long and tense wait for the result of the England match down at Twickenham!
