Markus Fraunholz Filmed the Historical Film Frei (eng. Free) with the OConnor 2575 Posted: 20/12/2013
Markus Fraunholz Filmed the Historical Film Frei (eng. Free) with the OConnor 2575

The historical film Frei is a fictitious story about a romance between an SS-Obersturmbannfuhrer and a Jewish Holocaust survivor. The historical backdrop is the ratline, a Nazi escape route after the war. The work on the film took director Bernd Fischauer and DoP Markus Fraunholz to South Tyrol and Trieste. The scenery and atmosphere there had to match those of the original locations among others, Buenos Aires. This required intensive preparation and planning to the last detail. To implement the 88 motifs in 27 days, Fraunholz needed camera support that would precisely carry out every predetermined setting. That is why he depended on the robust and innovative 2575 fluid head by OConnor, a part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Well equipped with 2575 fluid head Camera Support Rental House counts on OConnor Posted: 08/09/2011
Well equipped with 2575 fluid head  Camera Support Rental House counts on OConnor Florida rental house owner Mario Deas doesnt cut corners, even when it comes to support. When someone comes into Mar Media for their camera package and I hear I need a fluid head it goes without saying they are asking for OConnor, says Deas. It is the industry standard. 

Deas should know. He spent 12 years in the field, traveling and shooting. When HD came into its own and became a viable alternative to film, he bought some gear and started renting to friends. Recognizing a solid business opportunity, he quickly built up his rental inventory, expanded his client base and transitioned his company, Mar Media, into a full-service digital cinema rental house. Were a specialty shop in Miami with a good reputation and loyal clientele, he says. We do everything from high-profile music videos and commercials to independent films. Were gearing up for TNTs NBA playoff promos at the moment. And, of course, the most requested support is OConnor.

OConnor 2575 Fluid head  Rawson Gears Up for New Season of Cougar Town with OConnor OConnor, a Vitec Group brand, announces that cinematographer Andrew Rawson has chosen their 2575 head for the new season of the ABC series Cougar Town.

I've been with Bill Lawrence, the creator of Cougar Town and Scrubs for the last ten years, says Rawson, who started as a gaffer on Scrubs and moved up to DP on the last two seasons. When Lawrence was prepping the pilot for Cougar Town, he brought Rawson onboard and stayed when the series was picked up. We used OConnor heads on Scrubs for eight years, Rawson says. Actually, I have always used them. I would never be caught on a set without an OConnor 2575. Quite honestly even if we were doing a show with gear heads.
