From Features to Commercials, One Constant for Koretz is Petrol Bags Posted: 19/11/2013
From Features to Commercials, One Constant for Koretz is Petrol Bags
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.

Sebastian Wiegrtner Relies on OConnor Camera Accessories When Pressed for Time

When a shooting schedule is tight, the team must be able to depend on the camera technology more than ever. DP Sebastian Wiegrtner had exactly three days to shoot the demo film, Tumulus, which left no leeway for experimentation. Before he even started filming, he wanted to make sure he would deliver the project on schedule, so he equipped his Sony PMW-F3 with professional camera accessories by OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. For this critical project he selected the O-Box WM Mattebox together with the O-Grips handgrips and the new O-Focus DM Follow Focus with Glow-in-the-dark Marking Disks.

Polecam goes ultra-mobile Posted: 19/03/2010
Polecam goes ultra-mobile Videographers with disabilities can now shoot professional-quality content using the industry-standard Polecam transportable video production jib thanks to an extraordinary new device developed at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. Using the CanAssist Polecam Power Chair, a physically-challenged cameraman can keep pace with people and objects in motion. It is an easy-to-operate system for recording activities such as documentaries and sporting events.
/>
/> "We embarked on this project after being approached in 2009 by Vancouver film-maker Joe Moulins," explains Darcy Lane, Hardware Manager at CanAssist. "Our engineers have equipped a motorised wheelchair with an eight-foot Polecam boom arm and pan-tilt head. Steven Cayer, a 17-year-old undergraduate with cerebral palsy, became one of the first to use the CanAssist Polecam Power Chair when he produced a video report on the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. He has since continued this activity covering the Paralympics."
