Cool Tools For the Digital Age From MICRODOLLY HOLLYWOOD
1995 was a hallmark year for the film and television industry. Digital technology was in full swing and would soon change forever the way images were created and distributed.
In Hollywood that same year, an award winning Producer/Director retired after forty years. During his career he had worked on productions in some twenty-five countries. No matter the budget, every project had a common problem, a need for lighter and more portable camera support equipment. He formed MICRODOLLY HOLLYWOOD to meet this need. Using aerospace design and manufacturing methods, a unique line of Camera Jibs, Dollies, and Mounts were crafted and quickly became the industry standard for crews who needed to travel.
Next was the MICRODOLLY POWER HEAD. This device provides remote control of pan and tilt movement for cameras. Designed to be used with the MICRODOLLY JIB, the POWER HEAD also works with the MICRODOLLY SUCTION MOUNT when attached to moving vehicles. Cameras weighing up to forty-five pounds (18kg) may be used. The unique POWER HEAD design allows it to be controlled by silent, super-smooth manual push-pull cables or joy stick/electric motors. The POWER HEAD may also be inverted and mounted to a standard tripod for manual control.
Built for extreme weather conditions, MICRODOLLY gear has worked from the Arctic to the Sahara Desert to the jungles of Panama. Today there are thousands of MICRODOLLY products in use in some sixty countries. Designed to travel, this gear is well suited for today's new digital cameras.
