Commercial in Hamburg
Steven Kisilevich was kind enough to share some shots of a recent commercial he directed.
When I talked to MBF Filmtechnik in Hamburg about needing the best equipment they have for our commercial shoot, I felt like they rolled out the red carpet for us. We got the GF-8 crane (even Xten version), they gave us all the GFM track we wanted and of course the Primo Dolly with all the extras (i.e. GF-Combi Rigs, bazookas, bowl mount, etc). Everything was top notch, worked perfect! And using the GFM Dolly's, you get the same precision and quality every time! Thanks GFM and thanks MBF, you guys rock!

A short note from Alex Lawrence Nabi
Few Days ago the DP Alex Nabi was in Munich at the Eisbach Studios and send us these lines:
Hello, thought i would share these pics with you - always great to work with GFM Equipment. GF-8 was used on this one for the Audi R18 Footage.
Thanks for this and GO ON ;-)
The GF-Slider goes "Down Under"
Our long-time collaborator, Toby Copping, a top Key Grip from Australia introduced the GF-Slider whilst shooting Hackshaw Ridge last year and has since used it on a couple of other jobs.
On our current feature we're working with Scott Sakamoto who is the A Cameraman. Every day we are seeing how versatile the GF-Slider is and Scott loves it. From the experience I've gathered working with GFM's Slider, I think it's an absolute winner.
We're extremely grateful to Toby for all the practical input he's given us during the development of the GF-Slider and wish him continued success.

GF-8 Xten in the South of France
Key Grip, Brice Pillot was kind enough to send some pictures and greetings from France this week.
I just finished a movie in the South of France called "Pere fils, thérapie". The locations were between Marseille and "les gorges du verdon". Green canyons, rugged terrain. Really nice. It was directed by Emile Gaudreault and the DOP was Roland Plante. We used the GF-8 Xten during the 5 weeks with great success. I also use your Adjustable Riser on my home made Rickshaw Dolly. Very efficient when the operator wants a shoulder effect but doesn't want to carry the camera.
