Q&A with Amando Crespo Gonzalez

Do you remember the first time you saw or heard of the Steadicam?
Yes... at 1988, I couldn't understand how a camera could fly over the set...

What was it about the Steadicam that made you want to pursue it as a career?
I think that Steadicam loved me... It was a "love story" ...

What were some of the biggest challenges you remember about becoming a Steadicam operator?
With my old III-A my first work with a Arri BL-4

What are some of the biggest challenges now? be proud of my family, my girl friend Anita (well knowed steadicam "amateur" girl operator at Spain)

Did you ever have a "big break' moment? A career event that clearly changed or paved the way for everything to follow?
..yes!.. But never fall...

From whom do you take your inspiration? Has that changed over the course of your career?
Charles Papert

Is there a shot, film, or moment in your career that you can think of as your most proud?
No... I have more shoots. Long and longest..

What work of your peers do you admire?
"Ugly Betty" by Charles Papert and EMERGENCY

Many people will say they've tried on a Steadicam once, and immediately thought, "absolutely not." What do you think is different about those of us that say "absolutely"?
...Sense of humor about it?...
