"Harry Panagiotidis is one of the best operators in the world –partly because he's a true artist-athlete, and partly because he's a superb film-maker. Harry approaches Steadicam like an instrumentalist– with an eye for the larger arc of the story as well as the immediate concerns of the shot. He is the guy you want with you in the trenches: a living master of Steadicam.”

“Whenever a project calls for Steadicam, I always recommend Harry to the Cinematographer (if he is unknown to them). Not only does Harry contribute creatively and technically to achieve the most superior quality production – he is also one of the nicest guys around. His wealth of experience, skill and generosity of spirit makes him a genuine asset to have on any crew. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
