Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE Posted: 15/11/2013
Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE
For alternative rock band MUSEs 2nd Law World Tour, cinematographer Matt Hayslett needed to choose his equipment carefully in order to keep up with fast-paced life on the road. The Grammy-winning group, which has played for packed houses in its native England and throughout Europe, is currently touring North America. Some of MUSEs most recent hits include Survival, the theme song for the London Summer Games, and Madness, the theme song for TBS/TNTs March Madness, for which the group broke the record for Billboards longest #1 alternative airplay song. For its latest endeavor, MUSE selected Hayslett to film a documentary about life on tour. The band really wanted to invite fans behind the scenes for the first time, at the height of their career, Hayslett explains. Since Id shot the trailer and video material for their album release, with the blessing of Warner Bros. Records, they brought me in to do just that. For the world tour, I needed a tripod that could support a wide range of camera rigs and be able to keep up with our busy schedule. The Sachtler Ace M fluid head and tripod fit the bill, he says. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. In addition to capturing the behind-the-scenes footage, Hayslett shot the live visuals that the audience watches at the show. There is nothing like seeing your videos on the big screen with an amazing performance and incredible lighting, he comments.

Buono Chooses OConnor for The Art of Visual Storytelling Tour Posted: 04/07/2013
Buono Chooses OConnor for The Art of Visual Storytelling Tour

 

When Saturday Night Live film unit cinematographer Alex Buono decided to share his knowledge of the industry in a big way with a 31-city educational tour he calls The Art of Visual Storytelling, the first pieces of equipment he chose for his travel package were fluid heads by OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. My biggest mandate in deciding to plan a workshop is that Im demonstrating with the exact tools that I actually use in my professional work, he says. OConnor fluid heads are probably the most ubiquitous piece of gear on my sets. I literally have an OConnor on every single shoot, so it was an imperative of mine to include OConnor in this workshop.
