I am a freelance Cinematographer based in Los Angeles, CA. I specialize in Jib and remote camera work including aerial, pursuit vehicle, and VFX MoCo operating. I have worked in the industry for over 15 years and understand the varying complexities and off-beat challenges of the production world both on stage and in the backcountry. I understand that every production is different and the ability to adapt while working on your feet is key to survival.

I am also an avid outdoorsmen and mountaineer. When I am not out filming I spend much of my year in Montana skiing and climbing mountains. Not only has this taught me so many lessons about life, it has given me a great advantage in todays changing production climate. As productions continue to shrink in size they become more mobile and the possibility of shooting in more remote locations becomes a reality with help from people like me.

OWNER NOTES

This is a fully remote wireless repeatable head including Zoom & Focus. It fixes to any Mitchell mount surface from pedestals to jibs and dollies. It can either be operated by joystick or a pan-bar setup. Wheels can be included for an additional fee.

The biggest advantage of this unit is MoCo at relatively low cost. You can record and Play back motion live, or spanned over time. It can also export positional data for use in VFX.
The entire unit can pack into one large pelican case but will be divided into 2 cases when shipping.

Though an additional skilled operator hough an additional skilled operator is not required, it is highly recommended as this is a fairly complex unit to operate.

*Cart can be included for an additional $50/day
*Pro Wheels for operating can be included for an additional $100/day

**It is still necessary to run AC power with wireless control. To be completely wireless you will need to have two 24v block batteries.
