Issue 94 - October 2014

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.

Keeping Your Post Prodction on Track with Subclips and Search Bins
Alex Macleod

For my 2nd Kit Plus article I thought I’d try and build on the theme of my first, and that’s one of making sure things are organised at all levels of your post production projects.

Last time I talked about trying as best as you can to stick to the ‘two week rule’, making sure that the names & locations of every asset you import, and every bin & sequence that you create in your project - will make sense to you regardless of how long it is you spend away from it.
