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.

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.
