Team Deakins speaks with Steadicam operator, Pete Cavaciuti (1917, EYES WIDE SHUT, NOW YOU SEE ME 2). Of course, we learn a lot about what the Steadicam is, what training is needed, what you can do with it and what you can’t, and that being a Steadicam operator is a way of life! Pete also shares his experiences with Stanley Kubrick on the film EYES WIDE SHUT and talks about his most challenging shot. He also talks about experiences on KUNDUN, SKYFALL, 1917, and BLADE RUNNER 2049. A great look into a very specific skill!

This was so informative. I had no idea how involved the process was. Part of it might be with the greats it becomes an invisible art: like editing. If you're good, you don't notice it. But this really shed light onto the subject matter and I love how open Pete was and how he helps groom people who show effort and willingness.
