Creel Really Cooks with Sachtlers Ace

Whether its for the ongoing cooking series Thats Fresh or the website video for The Restaurant at Meadowood (a 3 Michelin Star restaurant in Napa), actress turned filmmaker Leanna Creel says she has used her Ace by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, non-stop since she acquired it.

I like to use the Sachtler Ace because its the right size for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II that I use, she says. Its lightweight, versatile and easy to use. When we were doing the video on The Restaurant at Meadowoods website, we shot in various gardens, the busy kitchen, and other unique but often small areas. The Ace allowed me to carry my camera into these and the wild areas around Napa in a run-and-gun style of documentary action, quickly.

On a recent shoot for the ongoing Thats Fresh cooking series, I needed to capture images of chef Helen Cavallo, quickly and with a very small footprint. The kitchens used for these episodes are often small and contain a lot of equipment that can get in the way of a camera set up, she adds. There are also certain restrictions we place on ourselves, like finding the best way to document the images needed for the show. With the Ace, I can set up quickly and get in almost anywhere.

I simply love working with Sachtlers Ace, she adds. Beyond the light weight and versatility, I love the ability to tilt down 90 degrees and shoot from other creative angles. When were done with one shot, its easy to slide the Ace into its bag, and set off for the next location quickly and safely.

Creels website video for The Restaurant at Meadowood is online now. Thats Fresh, a series of 1-2 minute cooking episodes is airing on various Disney websites, their YouTube channel as well as on Disney Jr. In addition Creel has just finished directing and producing a web series also for Disney about people living with type one diabetes The Sachtler Ace as my support, of course, she says.
