Today, both Drake and Flavell actively rely on Miller's Air Tripod System to help set the scenes of their visionary work. While Drake spends most days in London, creating recipes for Hello Fresh, a company he co-founded that delivers recipes and the exact fresh ingredients needed to cook those recipes directly to shoppers' doors, Flavell is currently making her mark in Italy, shooting her new travel mini-series, The Dolce Vita Diary.

For Drake, his main equipment goal was to find camera support technology that would assist him in bringing a cinematic quality to the recipe videos he creates. "While some Miller users may be capturing beautiful pan shots of majestic scenery with wide-angle lenses, my landscape is a plate of food. And the Air Tripod's dynamic height range, which can drop as low as just above floor level, allows me to get up-close and personal to my dishes to capture that mouthwatering feel that makes you want to reach into the image and grab the dish!"

Perfect for traveling light without compromise, Miller's Air Tripod Systems each consist of an Air Fluid Head, offering professionals authentic Miller fluid head pan and tilt technology, and a variant of the Solo 75 2-Stage Tripod, either carbon fibre or alloy. The Air Fluid Head, composed of magnesium alloy housing and precision components, comes with two positions of selectable counterbalance and a dual pan handle option. Both systems have the ability to support payloads ranging from two kilograms to five kilograms.

"Nothing I do is choreographed," Flavell adds, "which means that I need a system that is portable enough to run around with, can be set up on the fly and still creates the cinematic effect that I need. The Air Tripod ticks all of those boxes."

When Patrick Met Kylie: A Love (of Food) Story is currently airing in approximately 68 countries across the globe. The couple's second series together, Amore al Dente, is slated to air in Canada later this year, along with Flavell's The Dolce Vita Diary, which will hit Canadian screens in January 2015.

21st Century Technology for 20th Century Content
James Hall A big challenge facing owners of legacy content is rationalising and archiving their tape and film-based media in cost effective and efficient ways, whilst also adding value. Normally the result of this is to find a low cost means of digitising the content – usually leaving them with a bunch of assets on HDD. But then what? How can content owners have their cake and eat it?
