William Demeritt is a Steadicam / Camera Operator based in Los Angeles, CA. I’m a member of IATSE Local 600, NABET53, SOC Active and Steadicam Operator’s Association member. I’m well versed with scripted TV and feature film production, as well as live event, live-to-tape, multi cam and live broadcast environments. I have accumulated over 12 years of Steadicam experience, and have worn the rig for well over 1,000 hours (not just working, but actively wearing and shooting). As new technologies emerge, I am constantly staying on top of new developments in camera stabilization and production, including Augmented Reality (tethered and wireless) on Steadicam.
I have worked as a professional Steadicam operator and camera operator for a number of years now, but I’ve thought about framing, blocking and the aesthetics of movement and cinematography for my whole life. I have worked hard to facilitate communication, actively find solutions and do my very best to make the product on screen just as dynamic and exciting as the day it was shot. I believe that hiring a Steadicam operator means hiring a professional to help not just get the shots, but keep the production moving forward so you’re on time and on budget.
I am looking forward to collaborating with you on your next project to bring your vision to the screen.
