Garrett Brown (born April 6, 1942) is an American cinematographer, best known as the inventor of the Steadicam. Brown's invention allows camera operators to film while walking without the normal shaking and jostles of a handheld camera. The Steadicam was first used in the Hal Ashby film Bound for Glory (1976), receiving an Academy Award (Best Cinematography), and since used on such films as Rocky, filming Rocky's running and training sequences, and Return of the Jedi, where Brown walked through a Redwood forest with the Steadicam shooting film at 1 frame per second to achieve the illusion of high speed motion during the speeder-bike chase.

  • Garrett Brown (born April 6, 1942) is an American cinematographer, best known as the inventor of the Steadicam. Brown's invention allows camera operators to film while walking without the normal shaking and jostles of a handheld camera. The Steadicam was first used in the Hal Ashby film Bound for Glory (1976), receiving an Academy Award (Best Cinematography), and since used on such films as Rocky, filming Rocky's running and training sequences, and Return of the Jedi, where Brown walked through a Redwood forest with the Steadicam shooting film at 1 frame per second to achieve the illusion of high speed motion during the speeder-bike chase. The sequence in Rocky that took the audience up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum for the triumphant moment at the top was first filmed during tests for the original Steadicam system.The system was used extensively on Stanley Kubrick's 1980 classic horror film The Shining, starring Jack Nicholson. Brown's Steadicam work can be seen in over seventy motion pictures. Brown has also invented the SkyCam (for football games), DiveCam (following olympic divers) and MobyCam (underwater camera following olympic swimmers). Garrett Brown is the father of Jonathan Brown, a professional cinematographer in his own right. Both worked together as Steadicam operators on the film Bulworth, directed by and starring Warren Beatty. A member of the American Society of Cinematographers and the Directors Guild of America, Garrett Brown was recipient of an Oscar for Scientific or Technical Achievement from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for his invention of the Steadicam.

  • La sua invenzione permise ai cameraman di effettuare delle riprese in movimento, ad esempio camminando o correndo, evitando di fatto i classici scossoni nel risultato delle riprese. Tra i primi e più famosi utilizzi della Steadicam ricordiamo le scene dell'allenamento di Rocky e le scene in movimento di Shining. Garrett Brown inventò anche numerosi altri supporti per cineprese mobili, basati principalmente sulla stabilizzazione dell'immagine, come ad esempio la SkyCam, la FlyCam e la GoCam. (it)

  • Garrett Brown (6 april 1942) is een Amerikaans cameraregisseur. Zijn camerawerk is te zien in meer dan 70 films. Hij is vooral bekend geworden als uitvinder van de steadicam, waarmee een cameraman uit de hand zonder schokken lopend kan filmen. De steadicam werd voor het eerst gebruikt in de film Bound for Glory (1976), die een Academy Award kreeg voor Best Cinematography. Vervolgens werd de steadicam gebruikt in onder andere Rocky (1976), The Shining (1980) en Return of the Jedi (1983). Voor die laatste film liep Brown door een Redwood-bos, waarbij hij met 1 frame per seconde opnamen maakte voor de scène met de speeder bikes om zodoende een hoge snelheid te simuleren. Brown vond ook de SkyCam (om American football wedstrijden te filmen), de DiveCam (om Olympische duikers te filmen) en de MobyCam (een onderwatercamera om olympische zwemmers te volgen) uit. Hij is de vader van de cameraregisseur Jonathan Brown. Hij won een Oscar en een Emmy Award voor zijn uitvinding van de steadicam. (nl)
