Jon Boast - DOP

Polecam at the TPI Awards

Out and about again, this time in Spain shooting an abandoned village for Discovery Network with his trusty go anywhere (cherished and well used) Polecam Starter Pack configured with Sony A7sii. The Polecam system is an everyday tool, enabling me to grab those additional and unexpected shots for the production; granted time is always against you on these types of shoots, but the Polecam is quick and easy to setup and relocating for the next shot is simple and effortless.

The busy schedule and minimal operational spaces available to Alex for the shoots meant that the Polecam was the perfect solution – whether tight in by an infinity pool or perched up high on a narrow beam.

As soon as the extraordinary property shoot schedule was finished, Alex took his Polecam rig straight out to Bangladesh, a very different environment indeed – but none the less, both Alex and his Polecam were just at ease in capturing the breakers shipyard as the stunning European properties

Polecam at NAB 2018 Show

Polecam were on the ACR Systems stand (Advanced Cinema Robotics) in Central Hall showing the Skeleton rig fitted with their gimbal. Greg Salman was on hand to help with all enquiries.

"Mounting gimbals on a Polecam is a no-brainer thanks to the Polecam Universal Gimbal mount which covers most gimbal fixings including Ronin, Movi and any 1/4". Switching from hand held to a crane seems to be the way forward."
