Competitive athletics with the OConnor 1030 fluid head
For his current documentary film GOLD Du kannst mehr als du denkst (Engl.: GOLD You can do more than you think), Grimme award winner Michael Hammon and his film team follow three extraordinary athletes on their way to the 2012 Paralympics in London. With the easy operation of the 1030 fluid head by OConnor, a part of Vitec Videcom, a Vitec Group company, Hammon was able to completely focus on the people in front of the camera and capture thrilling images from the lives of three professional handicapped athletes.

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.
