From Features to Commercials, One Constant for Koretz is Petrol Bags Posted: 19/11/2013
Whether cinematographer Eric Koretz is prepping for his recent feature Comet, directed by Sam Esmail, or commercials for Motorola and American Airlines, the one constant for him is Petrol Bags, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. Often these shoots involve heavy traveling, Koretz says. One thing I dont have to worry about is the condition of my equipment as we move because its always packed in my Petrol Bags. I chose them because they are simply versatile, have unique features and are well built.

Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE Posted: 15/11/2013
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.

Sachtler Ace M Perfect Fit for Fishers Arbys Spots Posted: 30/07/2013
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.
