He doesn’t live in Hollywood and laymen might not know his name, but 71-year-old Philadelphian Garrett Brown is an integral part of the way cinema and televised sports look today — he invented both the Steadicam and the Skycam. Before Brown invented the former in the ’70s, movie-camera movement was restricted to heavy rail systems. The Steadicam, a vest-like stabilizer worn by camera operators, introduced the possibility of free-roaming shots that could never have been done before — like Danny’s tricycle ride in The Shining or Rocky running up the Art Museum steps. (Both scenes were actually filmed by Brown himself.) Earlier this month, Brown was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame; we spoke with him about his career, running up the Art Museum steps before it was cool and Stanley Kubrick being a pretty decent guy.
