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.

Rodney Charters pressed for time with the Sachtler Video 18 Posted: 11/06/2013
Rodney Charters pressed for time with the Sachtler Video 18
Director and Producer Alicia Brauns recently had a very personal story to tell about her fathers journey from holocaust survivor to well-known surgeon. To depict that journey and Dr. Jack Brauns positive outlook on life, she turned to her favorite cinematographer, Rodney Charters, ASC. The two knew they would be covering an extensive amount of ground, from inside the infamous camps to the journey through Germany and beyond in a short shooting time. They had to build their shooting package carefully so they chose Canon C300s supported by a fluid head and legs from Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
