Tools in Our Arsenal
MoVI M5 – The Freefly Systems M5 gimbal allows us to mount smaller camera packages ranging anywhere from 2 to 5 lbs. The MoVI is the top-of-the-line industry standard three-axis gimbal, and its performance will prove why it’s trusted. The M5 can be carried, mounted, and rigged in a number of ways, including inverted mode on our drone systems, giving you the rare perspective of flying the camera above the drone.
MoVi M15 – The Freefly Systems M15 gimbal is the big brother of the M5 & M10; all the power and precision in a larger package. This allows us to mount heavy cinema cameras from 5 to 15 lbs. The specs of the M15 also allow increased customization, making it easier than ever to mount the exact lenses and accessories you want. As with all our gimbals, the M15 can be mounted on our drone systems to make your creative shot a reality.
Connex HD Wireless System – Whether we’re in the air or on the ground, we’ve been able to complete every shot with the Connex HD downlinking systems giving us a full 1080p HD wireless video signal. We have both the Connex and Connex Mini systems, giving you the option of unprecedented range or completely silent transmission. We also provide two receivers, allowing for separate wireless feeds for both the director and the 1st AC.
Follow Focus System – We supply our CineGears follow focus with both our ground and air gimbal systems. The motor module with built-in receiver keeps the rig lightweight and clutter-free so that you can keep your shots in focus on the ground or in the air.
ReadyRig – Our ReadyRig is definitely the game changer when carrying the MoVI on the ground. With this system, we’re able to transfer the weight of the gimbal from our operator’s arms to his hips. The body’s core carries the bulk of the weight, allowing our gimbal operator to repeat precise shots again and again until the director is satisfied with everyone’s performance.
The ReadyRig also allows us to run the MoVI gimbal system inverted. The camera can be held higher, at eye level, making “walk & talk” shots feel more natural. We know versatility is a necessity on set, and we strive to make every shot work.
Drones – We’ve been flying heavy lifters for over 4 years now. This includes our custom built Skyjib 8 Octocopters and FreeFly’s latest Alta Aerial Systems.
Capturing aerial cinematography is our favorite job on set, and our clients are always pleased with the aerial imagery we’re able to produce. With the amazing proximity coverage our drones provide, we’re able to fly both outside and inside.
Sometimes you just need to get high with a drone!
Camera Truck – All these great tools live in our “VidMuze-Mobile!” Our ProMaster 2500 Series EcoDiesel is the optimized camera truck; With a cargo space of 406 cubic feet and a ceiling height of 6′ 4,” everything, including our crew, fits comfortably.
Whenever we pull up on set, our clients are always impressed with the ProMaster!
