Career Leap with Sachtler artemis

Workshops for Aspiring Steadi Operators

This year, three more artemis workshops will give operators the chance to learn how to use the camera stabilizer systems from operator and artemis developer Curt O. Schaller.

The workshops will be held at the Sachtler Academy in Eching near Munich from August 27 to 30, Atomic Imaging Studios in Chicago, from September 25 to 29, and at the RED Studios in Los Angeles, from December 5 to 8. The artemis camera stabilizer systems by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videcom, a Vitec Group company, are known for their modularity, versatility, and individual customization.


When films, live events, or TV shows demand action, the artemis camera stabilizer system can facilitate smooth, moving shots. To get the most from the system, skilled operation is essential and opens up completely new creative possibilities. The artemis workshops begin with a theoretical introduction to basic professional operating and a presentation of the entire system. The program encompasses the professional configuration of the sled, vest, and  spring arm.

For perfect walking shots, special operation and walking techniques are taught and intensively practiced in the workshop under expert supervision. In-depth exercises, matched to the interests of the participants, complete the course. Additionally, the workshop participants will be prepared for practical situations. This includes using wireless focusing, communicating with the director and the actors as well as filming scenes. As the product’s developer, Curt O. Schaller knows every nuance of the system and how it operates in the real world, so this is an excellent way for participants to get information and tips first hand. According to workshop graduate, Camera Operator Robert Cain, "The artemis workshop has given my skills as a steadi operator an enormous boost. I can recommend it to anyone who is really serious about filmmaking."
