Bernard Château

Passing of Bernard Château, the Gentleman with the Movie Camera Car

We were saddened to learn of the death of Bernard Château, “a camera car specialist” as he liked to call himself, on Monday, 15 August 2016, at the age of 83. His long career spanned feature-length and short films, television advertisements, second units, and much more. But the project of which he was proudest was his work on Gérard Oury’s cult classic, La Grande vadrouille. We will always remember his attendance at the Micro Salon in 2011 and 2014, his friendly nature, and his two last camera cars, which he took care of like the apples of his eye!
