Carl Wiedemann : Chicago Steadicam Operator, Videographer, FilmmakerThese days I'm primarily working as a Steadicam Operator however I do have significant videography experience on corporate, documentary, and dramatic projects. I can gather creative b-roll, shoot interviews, and am adept with videography in unstructured documentary situations.

I have a proclivity for shooting dynamic, dramatic and visceral situations, (dance, bands, fashion, construction, demolition, music videos, surgery), but am also adept with low key situations where technical and aesthetic fundamentals are required (for interviews, documentaries and "b-roll"). View some samples here.

I have an extensive background in Dance Documentation and Steadicam Operation. I am based in Chicago, minutes from The Loop. Various work samples can be viewed on my Demo page.
