Polecam on “DIY SOS” For Children In Need

There’s nothing like being thrown in the deep end with a new piece of equipment which is what happened to Tom Paterson of Forager Films Ltd on the BBC’s “DIY SOS” program being filmed for “Children in Need” later this year. His first outing with the Ronin M head using the Black Magic Micro Cinema Camera was a great success.

The flagship BBC program needed some dynamic moves in a rebuilt garden and for the dramatic final scenes of the film which the portability of the Polecam made easy.

“The adaptation to include the Ronin Head is incredibly simple and adds enormously to the stability of the head even in windier conditions. Polecam’s new converter which allows the Gyro Stabilised Ronin to be used on the Polecam is quick and effective and adds greatly to my shooting capacity.”
