Steadicam operator Ray Andrew on the set of The Shining. Andrew stepped in to replace Garrett Brown for one month during production, while Brown fulfilled a previous commitment to operate Steadicam on Rocky II. In this photo, Andrew is sitting in a specially modified wheelchair that was used for many shots on the film, including the shots following Danny racing around the Overlook on his Big Wheel.

These models were used to work out layout and scale issues, as well as to conduct early lighting tests before the actual sets were built.
