Escape by monk. My escape from Death Castle. I think I did something terrible to the poor monk who came to give me the last rights.


A prison with a great view (and a rose garden as I recall.) Miolans

In Crossbow they used to call it club Med of death ;)

Christian Duguay filming on the Bridge


With Christian Duguay. The Bridge.

He used a Steadicam and I think it was George, the Armorer, who built a saddle mount for it. The Steadicam was invented about 30 years ago. It is a camera mount with spring-loaded arms that is strapped to the cameraman’s body and basically allows the camera to float unaffected by the motion of the cameraman. Thus, he can walk through a scene and it creates a picture that looks like the camera is dolly-mounted on a track.
