OConnor Support is Crucial for Lonsdale on Bones

Cinematographer Gordon Lonsdale, ASC, credits OConnor support for allowing his operators to keep moves fresh and innovative on the long running Fox series Bones. Actually, Ive been a big fan of OConnor throughout my career, he says. When I was an assistant I used the 50 and 100. Then when the lightweight 100 came out, I thought Id died and gone to heaven. OConnor is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Digital 3D, a Los Angeles-based production company is known for taking their gear on wild rides. Its Emmy-winning Director of Photography/Producer Ken Corben, pushes boundaries so that viewers can experience worlds they would never get to see on their own. Earlier this year, Corben and a crew of ten departed Ushuaia, Argentina for the Antarctic Peninsula aboard the 74 sailboat, Pelagic Australis. Their mission was to shoot penguin colonies underwater, from the air and on land/ice with a shooting package that included their 3D Epic beam-splitter with Zeiss and Nikon primes supported by the 120EX fluid head from OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

OConnor 120EX Goes 3D Cinematographer Michael McDonough has wrapped the 3D feature –The Mortician. Thanks to the OConnor 120EX's ability to support a heavy load and allow for smooth transitions through difficult sequences, he was able to take full advantage of post-Katrina New Orleans, Louisiana as he captured The Mortician's world. "By day he works on the beaten, bruised and bloody bodies of gunshot victims and other murdered souls. When a young boy breaks into the morgue, and his life, the Mortician (played by Method Man) begins a series of dangerous encounters with a threatening figure," McDonough explains.
