Another amazing behind the scenes guy for today's graph
This is Garrett Brown who was responsible for inventing the Oscar-winning Steadicam camera stabilizer
In the Star wars world he is famous for his work on the speeder bike scene from Return of the Jedi
The effect of speed was created by walking the Steadicam through the forest, shooting at 1fps. When played back at 24fps, the motion is 24 times as fast. Of course, the actors, bikes and pyrotechnics were all shot separately.
Pretty much a legend in his field this is a very welcome autograph
