Testimonials


"The brooding opening sequence set in the Ritz in Paris in 1997 on the night of her death is brilliantly shot."

DIANA
Independent - UK

 "James shows exceptional skills in operating even during extremely difficult tasks. Furthermore, he proved to be brilliant at framing the shots in the most beautiful way.

Anybody in the film business knows that this combination of technical bravura and the artistic eye is extremely rare and hard to find. James is an absolute exception. He is a true gem in this field." 

DIANA
Oliver Hirschbiegel - Director (Downfall, The Invasion)

"Rise is very well shot with some great shots of Manchester during the episode’s driving scenes..."

"...every shot was timed and storyboarded perfectly so we had everything worked out beforehand. We had an incredible steadicam operator who really put everything into the shoot..."

MK-V AR Omega Revolution


MK-V AR Omega Revolution

The new MK-V AR Omega rig is a revolutionary system developed from the original MK-V AR. The MK-V AR gave Steadicams the ability to rotate from high to low mode and back in one move, thereby opening up a huge amount of possibilities for directors and DoP's to get highly dynamic shots.

Segway

Segway


On request a Steadiseg (converted Segway) can be arranged. Designed specifically to be used with Steadicam or handheld camera allowing faster tracking with perfect smoothness this is a good stop-gap between a fast walk and a tracking vehicle, especially in tight spaces.

Steadiseg allows a Steadicam / MK-V Omega Revolution rig to be mounted either via hard mount (directly on to the Steadiseg's post) or via soft mount (worn as usual by the operator).
