  1. Hi Rob! Bud Kremp here! I hope this finds you healthy and happy! I am interested in your monitor. Let me know where I fall in line. I’ll need to make up my mind if I will actually pull the trigger. If you get a serious offer, by all means, take it. Otherwise, I hope I get it! all the best, Bud
  2. From ICG - It is with great sadness we announce the passing of long-time Camera Operator and National Executive Board member Dan Kneece. Dan was a member of Local 600 for over 30 years, serving on the NEB since 2010. I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Ted Churchill Desert Center class of December 1988. Dan, along with Mark O’ Kane, Chris Squires, and Guy Bee (to name a few) were on hand and couldn’t have been nicer to a group of people looking to perfect their Steadicam skills. Dan was patient, helpful and friendly. Though we never worked together professionally, Dan always remembered me when I would reach out to say hi or bump into him at Cine Gear. just as nice then as when I first met him. I will miss him and always remember his big, beautiful smile and happy soul. Goodbye friend. You were an original. Bud Kremp
  3. Hi Taj! im thinking I would take that bracket. What is the socket block made of? Thanks! Bud K
  4. Very interested, please contact me? budkremp@yahoo.com
  5. Hi Justen, I’ll buy your cinebag. Feel free to text me 818-402-6411 Cheers Bud K
  6. Still for sale Ladies and Gents! Price Drop! $4,000 USA PURCHASES ONLY PLEASE, Thanks for your consideration! Cheers, BK
  7. Hi Guys! Still for sale! Was asking $7,000 but will entertain any reasonable offer. Again, for sale in the US ONLY. Best, Bud Kremp
  8. No, Tom, it’s not “fine”. First, I’m not sure how you know what I have in my package to tell me my rental rate. You must have special powers! Secondly, the slow, methodical chiseling away at the $3,000 3 day week non pro rated (agreed... more if your package demands it) to a $600 5 day pro rated week is producer math that doesn’t add up for Steadicam operators who invest $1.000s of dollars on equipment and maintenance. It’s bad enough production wants movi’s And wave 1’s but aren’t willing to pay for them. $3,600 per day is $720. Thanksgiving weekend you’ll only be getting $2,160, I’ll be getting $3,000. Memorial Day weekend you’ll be making $2,880, I’ll be making $3,000. Plus say your final week of production you only 3 days....get my point?. How long before giving away the 3 day week will it be before production asks for a $600 a day, 3 day week?! That’ll be your problem I guess, I’ll be directing. Good luck to you.
  9. Any CURRENT or recent ABC series op that has shot in LA and received a $1,000 a day non pro rated $3,000 week rental on rig? I’m being told ABC’s policy is $600 a day, 5 day week pro rated...even though I have proof of two ABC shows that I got 3 day weeks on. Beware all you low ballers out there! They’re coming for you! The only way to defeat them is to hold strong and together on a $3,000 non pro rated week! It’s industry standard! Help me fight them off! Private text me if you want 818-402-6411 please include your name! Fraternally, Bud Kremp

  14. Hi Nathan, Is your Wave compatible with Pro Rigs? Still avail? Thanks!
  15. Hi Tony! I’m in LA and wouldn’t be able to one on one with you, but wanted to direct you to You Tube. Probably a valuable source of beginning info to start with, while you’re waiting to figure out a training situation! Why I would even bet, if all else fails you could maybe FaceTime your hero operator and possibly figure everything out! Congratulations on your Steadicam purchase! Have fun! Cheers, Bud K
  16. Hi All, Tis the season, and while YouTubin this morning, I began watching this Christmas parade at Disney World from 1984 that I hadnt seen since I was a high school grad! Bruce Jenner and Joan London introduce Live Elf Cam with New Wireless Video Transmission. Then, they popped this image on the screen! Anybody able to say who this operator is?! The image is pretty bad, so hard to tell for me. Thanks! Happy Holidays!
  17. Hi All, I only once, almost, needed to Fed Ex my package somewhere. Fed Ex said I needed to box my Backstage Steadicam Cart. I am now facing the same situation and looking for info on what most of you do when faced with this dilemma? Cheers, Bud K
  18. Hi Dave! FYI, don't see a price list attached? Am I missing something?
  19. Good morning, Gyro and bracket still available? Thank you!
  20. Good morning Richard, Would the AR still happen to be available? Cheers, Bud Kremp
