Åre, Sweden, Alpine World Skiing Championship Finals 2018

Polecam at the Geneva Motor Show
Women's downhill start

Pink Elephant filmed the Alpine WC finals in Åre. Located half way up Sweden close to the Norwegian border. Both the men and women races formed part of the Host Broadcast. SVT, Swedish national television, was the producing company. Since the time between the races were just 5 minutes we had to have two teams. The only team that were the same were the ones in the finish area. As a result of this there were two Polecams needed and Pinkelephant provided the production with both. The Polecam positions were at the start.Polecam operators was Peter Frick and myself, Tommie Rekstad.

Geneva Motor Show

Polecam at the Geneva Motor Show

For the 2nd year in a row I used the Sony A7Sii on the Polecam. This year opting to use the 10-18mm lens to give an even greater view of the McLaren Senna GTR car launch.

With some modifications to my long head, carried out by Polecam engineering department, I am able to power the camera, follow focus and HDMI to HD-SDI converter from the head end, simplifying the rig and minimising the amount of cables running up the pole.

The show was very Polecam heavy this year, including a 4min 45 second continuous Polecam shot, showing off each element of the cars design while the head engineer talked through each development. Quite a nerve racking experience hitting all the correct points at the correct time while being live to screen and the world!

The whole show can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/8tEQuFIJKiQ Supreme masterclass in Polecam work from 06'35" onwards. Very impressive Stuart - Steffan Hewitt - Polecam Founder/Owner!

With at least 2 news cars in the pipeline for McLaren this year, hopefully I'll be back for 2019

John manages to pack down one of his 3 Polecam kits into just 3 flight cases for his flights to the US or wherever. 'It's such a versatile and easily transportable jib. With the zoom lens attached it's a great alternative to a jimmy jib."
