Here’s a great montage of steadicam walking shots by the mysterious Edit Cadet 1. This very particular image, seen in many movies, makes for a fantastic piece when set to Edwin Starr’s ‘Twenty Five Miles’.
What’s more, I’m privileged to have two of my movies in the montage with ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ and ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs The World’. Am pretty sure the same shot is used in ‘Hot Fuzz’ too. Certainly there’s a shot running along with Angel & Danny in the final shootout.
Whatever. This is jolly good fun, although the ‘Pilgrim’ clip could have continued until John Patrick Amedori exploded into coins, mere frames after they cut out.
Enough nitpicks – this is an amazing montage! How many can you name?

UPDATE: The brilliant writer and video essayist Matt Zoller Seitz did a similar compilation back in 2009, this one featuring Godard, the Dardennes and (yes!) a fantastic shot from Temple Of Doom.
