  1. Hi guys! I'm Kyle (like the boy's name but I'm a lady). I'm NYC-based with 10 years in the business and 4 years in 600, now a 2nd AC. I've been lurking around the forums for a long time and reading a lot, watching videos, talking to people on set, and now I'm ready to start on the road toward becoming a steadi operator. I'm doing this if it kills me! There's a Bronze workshop at Abel NY coming up in March, but I've had a couple people tell me it's more worth it for me to wait and take a Silver workshop if possible. A silver workshop is a lot more expensive, plus will likely require travel, and money is always A Thing for me. Is the extra day really really really THAT worth it? Isn't it just better to sign up for the thing I know I can afford and begin my journey rather than keep waiting? On a different note, I have been lucky to work with awesome and very encouraging steadicam ops (and even 2nded for Larry this fall on a tier movie!) but I've yet to work with a woman steadi operator. I have to say I'm a little intimidated having only seen men do this thing I really want to do. If this message finds its way to any NYC based female steadi ops, could I maybe buy you coffee sometime and talk about the reality of being a woman on the job? Coffee offer is also open for any NYC guys who want to let me practice with their rigs. :)
