Cameraman for A Man Called Otto to Share His View at The Lindsay Theater

Nationally known camera operator and Sewickley native John “Buzz” Moyer will share his experiences on the set of A Man Called Otto between screenings of the film on Sunday, Jan. 29.

The free, 30-minute presentation will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the Large Screening Room, just after the Theater’s 2:05 p.m. show wraps and before the 5:15 p.m. screening begins. Those who already have watched the film are also welcome.

Moderator will be Beaver County Times Entertainment Editor Scott Tady, who covered the local production of A Man Called Otto. In addition, the Swedish pastries (semlors) featured in the film from Stangl’s Bakery in Ambridge can be purchased in the Theater lobby starting at 1:30 p.m.

Moyer, whose 33-year career spans more than 100 TV and cinematic projects with directors/producers such as Martin Scorsese, George Clooney and Ben Stiller, last spoke at the Theater about his work on the set of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story. Recognized in the industry for his Steadicam operator skills, Moyer taps his early years as an athlete, musician and dancer to track shots while walking alongside (or backward) in front of actors.

A graduate of Ithaca College, Moyer joined the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees 644 (now 600), now serves on the Board of Governors for the Society of Camera Operators and is a mentor and member of the Steadicam Operators Association.
