Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE Posted: 15/11/2013
Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE
For alternative rock band MUSEs 2nd Law World Tour, cinematographer Matt Hayslett needed to choose his equipment carefully in order to keep up with fast-paced life on the road. The Grammy-winning group, which has played for packed houses in its native England and throughout Europe, is currently touring North America. Some of MUSEs most recent hits include Survival, the theme song for the London Summer Games, and Madness, the theme song for TBS/TNTs March Madness, for which the group broke the record for Billboards longest #1 alternative airplay song. For its latest endeavor, MUSE selected Hayslett to film a documentary about life on tour. The band really wanted to invite fans behind the scenes for the first time, at the height of their career, Hayslett explains. Since Id shot the trailer and video material for their album release, with the blessing of Warner Bros. Records, they brought me in to do just that. For the world tour, I needed a tripod that could support a wide range of camera rigs and be able to keep up with our busy schedule. The Sachtler Ace M fluid head and tripod fit the bill, he says. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. In addition to capturing the behind-the-scenes footage, Hayslett shot the live visuals that the audience watches at the show. There is nothing like seeing your videos on the big screen with an amazing performance and incredible lighting, he comments.

Bill Fenster chooses the Sachtler Ace M for political documentary Posted: 30/10/2013
Bill Fenster chooses the Sachtler Ace M for political documentary
Documentarian Bill Fenster based in Phoenix, Arizona has relied on Sachtler fluid heads and tripods throughout his career. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. Therefore, when he first put a Sachtler Ace M to work in the summer of 2013, he was more than familiar with Sachtlers signature operational feel that the new, small tripod system would have to live up to. It was quite a challenge, keeping the quality of Sachtler with the much miniaturized size, he said. You wouldnt believe this thing it has Sachtlers immaculate movement, as all Sachtler tripods do. But this thing, you can practically put it in your back pocket.

Bertie Gregory and Sachtler Ace M on Vancouver Island Posted: 16/10/2013
Bertie Gregory and Sachtler Ace M on Vancouver Island
For more than two years, Bertie Gregory, the nineteen-year-old wildlife videographer from England, shot the fauna on Vancouver Island, Canada. This island, the largest in the Pacific in North America, is not only home to black bears, one of Gregory's main focuses. Wolves, pumas, and whales can also be found there. The young filmmaker recently finished his almost 16-minute documentary, West Coast Adventure, in which he also narrates and presents about black bears on the island. Since he did not want the bears to feel threatened or scared in their habitat, he shot from a boat with his Nikon D7000. For a firm stand, the wildlife filmmaker depended upon the lightweight and robust Ace M tripod system by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Sachtler Ace M Perfect Fit for Fishers Arbys Spots
For the first in a series of quirky national spots for the Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, cinematographer Gavin Fisher decided to use the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera, Canon lenses, and his trusty Ace M by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, for support. For this first spot, for Arbys, we shot in a small artist loft location, and on a very tight schedule, explains Fisher. I needed a lightweight package that I could move quickly. The Ace M was my perfect solution.

Sachtlers Ace M Provides Fluid Movement for Surf Documentary Posted: 02/05/2013
Sachtlers Ace M Provides Fluid Movement for Surf Documentary
Filmmaker Kellen Keene is dedicated to documenting artistic endeavors through his visuals. Recently, he was inspired to go behind-the-scenes with surfer and photographer Chris Burkard to show what it is like to be a surf photographer and to showcase how some of the images Burkard shoots are made. Keene knew every shot had to be in-the-moment, so he wanted a shooting package that could keep up with the quixotic personality of the surf. Thats why we shot most of the project on the Canon 5D Mark II and Nikon d800s. We also used the new GoPro 3. We had multiple water housings, stabilization gear and various Canon L-series and Nikon glass. For support, my choice was Sachtlers Ace M. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Making demanding web videos around the world with Sachtlers Ace M Posted: 19/04/2013
Making demanding web videos around the world with Sachtlers Ace M

"Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come," thought young filmmakers Paul Jax and Niclas Lffler in the spirit of Victor Hugo and so they started their own film production company We Make Them Wonder in 2012. Their specialty: web videos that stand out from the crowd demanding and creative. With these ideas, they are very successful, and their commissioned work has already taken them to 18 countries. The filmmakers were looking for a handy, lightweight tripod system suited to the budget of the young start-up company; they needed a system with a quick set-up, durability, versatility, intuitive operation, and designed for work with video-enabled DSLR cameras. They chose the Ace M tripod system with mid-level spreader by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
