OConnor Helps Chema Wrangle a Real Cow for Backyard Burger Spot Posted: 15/10/2013
OConnor Helps Chema Wrangle a Real Cow for Backyard Burger Spot
While filming his second commercial spot for the upscale fast-food Southeast-based company, Backyard Burger, Jon Chema faced both a tight budget and the challenge of wrangling a real live untrained cow. When I saw the storyboards, I saw that we would be shooting at the top of an overlook as morning fog rolled in and the sun rose on our location outside of Nashville. I realized the cow wasnt going to stand still, so I had to have a set-up that was steady and mobile at the same time. Thats why OConnors 1030D, O-Box, O-Grips and Follow Focus supporting our RED Epic with Zeiss Super Speed lenses was simply a must. OConnor is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Timeless on the Mediterranean with the Sachtler Video 15 Posted: 12/09/2013
Timeless on the Mediterranean with the Sachtler Video 15
When time begins to pass more slowly and the viewer is immersed in the sounds of the sea and the visually overwhelming images of the endless ocean, filmmaker Hans Leysieffer translates his motto into action: The world slows down, and it is time to watch. Slow motion and time lapse are his preferred stylistic devices to capture the fascination of the Mediterranean. In the nature documentary Mediterranean Magical Moments, it's not just about the beauty of the image for Leysieffer: To meet his expectations of visualizing the eternity of the ocean, he relies on the extremely robust and durable Video 15 fluid head by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
