Even the best director can’t describe every frame of a shot. One of the most fun and challenging parts of being a Steadicam operator is having a deep involvement in the final design of the shot. It is your responsibility to make the shot work. You are the one who has to move the camera through space. Where are you going with it? What are you looking at? For how long? With the freedom of movement the Steadicam provides, you can do almost anything; so how do you decide what the lens should frame at each moment during the shot?
