" Jo Oosthuizen is a world-class camera operator—handheld, studio mode, steadicam—he does it all with skill. He has a great eye for composition and is able to take whatever direction he gets and turn it into a good shot. He is not afraid to use his initiative when decisions have to be made in the moment. I was really impressed with his work with the Arri Trinity rig. We were able to get shots with it that one of our directors thought would only be possible with a Technocrane. It is a really useful tool, and Jo has mastered it "
