Flying a camera is more than just a film maker's dream; who hasn't dreamed of soaring high in the sky?
Until now, only full-on big-budget film productions could afford the costly equipment and skilled talent required to fly a camera high above a scene, run smoothly through a crowd, track a passing car, or follow a character up a flight of stairs.
AeriCam Hollywood's Kickstarter Campaign is aimed at bringing multi-axis camera stability to the average film maker.
Revolutionary 3 axis camera stabilization system with line of attachments providing full house production capabilities in one package.
What is the AeriCam Hollywood?
The Hollywood gimbal is a product that can bring the capabilities of a full scale hollywood production company to any photographer, videographer and film maker. In its base configuration the Hollywood is a hand held camera gimbal that blows away traditional steadicams in both its performance, and portability. The Hollywood is not only unique in its design, and construction, but it also has a wide array of attachments. These attachments allow it to become a cable cam, car cam, aerial camera, boom camera, etc. Before the Hollywood gimbal these tools would only be available to large scale production companies. This Kickstarter campaign will make it possible to put the AeriCam Hollywood into production, and make the development of new attachments and implementations possible.
AeriCam Hollywood attachments
While everyone loves the quality that camera stabilization platforms deliver, some find that they aren't practical for everyday shooting. The AeriCam Hollywood's long line of attachments aims at proving this train of thought wrong.
Suspension backpack — Using a handheld camera system can be quite fatiguing, which makes long shoots difficult. With fatigue also comes added motion from straining to stabilize the system. Our suspension back pack not only relives the strain associated with carrying a camera system, making long shoots easy and comfortable, but it also aids the user in eliminating the frustrating vertical motions caused by walking.
Cable Cam — Cable cameras are growing in popularity. They can provide amazing overhead, or following shots that would normally require an aerial vehicle (drone or full scale) in scenarios where they cannot operate. These systems are being used more and more frequently in places where safety is a concern like filming over crowds, or the environment is too small or tight for an aerial vehicle such as indoor venues.
Car mounted suspension system — This is by far our most exciting mount. The car mount is an amazing option for videographers and film makers looking to capture silver-screen quality chase scenes for a fraction of the price. You can now operate your camera from the comfort of your passenger seat, framing the perfect car chase with ease!
Red Epic Ready Aerial Drone — AeriCam has been designing and building drones for aerial photography for the past six years. This is our latest multi rotor – A folding octo-copter capable of carrying cameras like the Red Epic while maintaining industry leading stability, performance, and flight time.
