ProAm USA Aims to Bring its CarryOn Jib to Market Through a New Kickstarter Campaign Posted: 24/07/2014

ProAm USA, a manufacturer of production equipment for film and video enthusiasts and professionals, has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring its latest innovation, the CarryOn Jib, to fruition. With a goal of $25,000 and 29 days to reach it as of July 24th, if successful, the ProAm USA CarryOn Jib will be the most compact, yet full-sized crane on the market.

As a filmmaker, Ive learned that logistics and limitations of equipment can often come between us and our dreams, says Jonathan Baty, president of ProAm USA, in his Kickstarter video. Whether youre going overseas or trekking into a local wildlife park, without a multi-person crew youll have no choice but to limit yourself and perhaps sacrifice that one perfect shot. Without making sacrifices in quality or function, I designed the CarryOn Jib to be an easy-to-assemble, modular crane that allows filmmakers to get amazing, dynamic movements that only a crane can provide.
