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.

GF-16 in the Rocky Mountains
Our good friend Ken Woznow of Eagle Camera Support Systems Ltd., just sent us a few shots of the GF-16 on location for the feature “Burn Your Maps” in the Rocky Mountains near Canmore, Alberta, Canada:
It was a tough job getting the crane to the remote location but the modular design of the GF-16 made it possible. It was brought up via 4 X 4 truck and assembled with help from the Alberta Crew and tech., Brian Brook, who did a fine job. The following day we got the shot and wrapped before dark. Out just in time as the next day it started to snow heavy.
Vancouver based Eagle CSS supplies the Western Canadian film industry with high quality film production equipment and the required technical expertise to meet the challenges of each situation on set, ensuring the crew “get that shot”.
