Tiffen Announces Steadicam Gold UK Workshop

Tiffen International has announced the residential UK Steadicam Gold Workshop to take place at Latimer Place near Chorleywood, Buckinghamshire from November 1-6.

Tiffen said placements will be on a first come, first served basis. There will be a maximum of 20 placements available to offer maximum benefit from the training. Cost is inclusive of full board and lodging. The workshop fee is not negotiable without board and lodgings. 

Latimer Place is a venue with a wide selection of both outdoor and indoor locations available to work with. “Along with professional approaches to blocking and choreography, we will also be using grip, rickshaws, vehicle mounting and hands-free equipment amongst other industry tools to hone and improve your skills as a Steadicam operator,” said Robin Thwaites, Tiffen’s international sales director.

“This Gold Workshop will have an ever increasing technical approach to training, and will incorporate all of the advanced skills not generally covered on our Silver and Bronze Workshops, Thwaites said. “We would advise as usual that potential attendees have a reasonable basic understanding of Steadicam to get the most from the training, but instructors will be on hand for all levels of ability."

The five and a half day, intensive and subversive experience in the heart of Buckinghamshire, UK will feature some of Europe’s best Steadicam operators as instructors. They are from the worlds of motion pictures, broadcasting, drama, sports and corporate films.

They include Peter Cavaciuti (Thor; Captain America; Skyfall; Alice in Wonderland; The Wolfman and Eyes Wide Shut); Peter Robertson (Edge of Tomorrow; Anna Karenina; Hanna; Quantum of Solace; Atonement and Hot Fuzz); Paul Edwards (Man From UNCLE; Before I go to Sleep; 47 Ronin; Harry Potter (various); Run Fatboy Run and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy; and Roger Tooley (Penny Dreadful; Mortdecai; Inspector Lewis; Mr Selfridge; Green Zone and Shaun of the Dead).

Also present will be Tiffen lead instructors/co-ordinators Robin Thwaites and Danny Hallett.
