As I may have mentioned to many of you before, we here at Cinequipwhite are quite fond of the Steadicam systems. So much so that we have held 2 separate training sessions with them (One at our Montreal office and one in our Toronto office) and shown them at our annual February Freeze just to show how truly incredible they are, and how they offer a whole new dynamic to your work.

Well, we are doing it again! The CinequipWhite Toronto office will be hosting our 3rd Steadicam workshop, offering hands on experience with the Steadicam Flyer LE, as well as a Steadicam Pilot system. The weekend event will be taught by the exceptional Peter Abraham:

“Peter Abraham has been a Steadicam® Operator for 20 years. He began teaching Workshops in 1990 and has taught over 30 workshops from Seoul to San Fernando Road. His credits include Sex & The City, The Sopranos, Malcom X, No Way Home, ABC Wide World of Sports, The 1996 Olympic Games and hundreds of commercials, music videos and industrials. His work has been nominated for 4 Emmy Awards. Peter is part of the development team that designs the new generation of lightweight Steadicam® systems.”

So, be sure to mark your calendars for August 22nd-23rd, 8:30 AM – 6 PM. It costs $500 payable to the Tiffen Company, and includes breakfast and Lunch both days. Keep in mind though, there are only 9 spots available for this course, so sign up as soon as possible. Download the two forms from and return them to Susan Cummings via fax. This is a popular event, and a definite must for any aspiring Steadicam operator, so be sure to sign up soon.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call us here at the office and speak to Jonathan (me) or Yen (not me) at 416-467-7700. We look forward to seeing you then!
