DoP Michael Sanders Seamlessly Executes Remote Productions with AJA U-TAP SDI

Change is a constant in production, with new technologies, formats, and standards continuously challenging professionals to adapt and evolve. When the global pandemic struck, production professionals quickly found new ways to forge ahead, even amidst travel restrictions and social distancing regulations. To keep productions on the rails, remote workflows became the industry’s new normal, and professionals looked to technology to support everything from longer distance cable runs on-set to geographically dispersed monitoring and review sessions. Well positioned for the shift, UK-based Director of Photography (DoP) Michael Sanders had already dabbled in remote production for documentary films, corporate videos, and other projects for nearly a decade. In building out and refining his workflow over the years, Sanders quickly uncovered the AJA U-TAP SDI USB 3.0 capture device, which is now part of his standard camera kit.

Matthews and rsquo; Offers Gobo Plate and trade; XL Mounting Adapter

Due to the popularity of the Gobo Plate line of versatile mounting plates, Matthews introduces the new Gobo Plate™ XL, a beefy problem-solver offering endless robust rigging options.  

Like its smartly-designed sister products, this mounting essential is made to support an array of gear, from camera rigs, set pieces, lighting and grip modifiers to building materials like lumber and pipe. Built to receive 4.5” Grip heads, the XL is the big brother of the family—designed to couple heavier duty gear found on the rigging side of production that requires versatile support options and above all, safety. It easily bolts to standard cheese plates, hood mounts and hostess trays, etc. or may be nailed or screwed to lumber, set walls and overhead beams.
