  1. Hi all; The bad guys are attacking company tax numbers and other critical identifiers just like they're looking for SS numbers. Beware, things can be bought and ordered via your company and its a horrible situation. You can lock both your company identifiers with various reporting agencies just like you can lock your SS number. (Parents can lock their kids SS numbers too and prevent identity theft from them. A big problem too.) This is a heads up on the problem and maybe we can save someone/many a huge problem. Keep an eye on all of it in this weirdest of times!!
  2. Hi all; I've had some requests for different post lengths and I'm asking if anyone has a request. I'm having the machine shop make some and trying to do any quantity I can and save everyone. Right now, as normal stock, I have 7", 8.5", 9.5". I've got a request for 6". Let me know if you have any requests. Janice
  3. Hi all; I'm not sure where this post will lead but I'm trying to help those who may be young and new to the Movie business think about things they haven't before... This will and can cover a hundred different turns considering we're all in this new world of pandemic business shut down all the way to new trends in the industry. Here's my thinking that I've looked at for a long time and being older than most of you I've seen how the industry and business in every way has changed. Changes (to name a few). 1) Pandemic, who hasn't thought about money and when they'll get ba
  4. Hi all; I've got some of the metal replacement parts for the older vest. The pictures are titled. Some of you have vests that need rehabbed or are building your own vests, these could shortcut some of those steps. They're courtesy of Hugo Langer. I've got them and can send them out or help you with other steps. Yes they will be anodized. PM me if you have an interest.

  7. Jonathan; Not my cage or plates, good luck with sale. Just clarifying. Janice
  8. Hi all; Maybe this topic is about your personal story or challenges or experiences. I'm not sure but let's see what you come up with. Janice
  9. Hi all; As the new year is almost upon us and we, probably, look back on a year or a time frame and I wonder what you think is the historical importance of Steadicam to the Media Industry? I look at the now forty years since its inception and want us, the users of it to document our thoughts. This may be a valueable educational and cathartic moment for us all to express our experiences and deep thoughts on the subject. Look for the other topic of 'What Steadicam has meant to you." for your personal story if you want to share. I am always impressed at the depth of kn
  10. Joel; Nothing wrong with Gimbal, I should have added that to my list of gear that you're keeping on a Master sled. What was traditional was you got rid of K section and all the rest. Now people are using the K section in some form, from what I hear. The top stage is ok but not great from what I remember. So in the end you're not left with much from the original rig. You've gotten good advice from others here, so I'm sure they know more than me. Janice
  11. Hi all; I'm looking to discuss political events, rallies, commercials etc. and how we can get reliably get paid. Most of this stuff seems to be non-union and production companies are going to hire us and then when they don't get paid we don't get paid!! Yikes, with all those posts about bills still unpaid from the previous election I'm concerned. Any thoughts as this contentious time starts to ramp-up what have you done? I got a call for an Iowa political event, no idea the party or candidate and it made me think. Janice
  12. Hi Janice. Just posted this and another workshop pic on the forum.

    I hope all is well with you.

      • Terry;

      Great picture haven't seen that in decades, thanks. 

  13. Hi all; Budgeting, not often a happy subject for most but as we both work into tax season and a new year, its worth discussing. The media industry matures and changes we should revisit this subject. There is no doubt the industry, the union, and the world is changing. We mostly work freelance and there are few safe guards, let alone financial ones.... I know many, many freelancers (maybe most) who are in deep …… because they are underprepared. The ideal was always, for me, 15% for taxes over what I had taken out of my check because lots of things get paid throughout the
  14. Paul; Good luck, I'm sure you'll do fine! Janice
