Are you looking for dynamic and reliable aerial vertical tracking shots for live events with a full-sized camera and telescopic lens? Is ground space too limited or unstable for a crane? Maybe the drone you were planning to use can’t fly due to crowds or other restrictions or is simply unable to carry the equipment loads? Cammotion’s award-winning Vortex aerial camera mount system can solve all these problems and provide the filmic-style shots you had in mind. Now in its 15th year of operation, Vortex has been used successfully and repeatedly on many high profile live events that are broadcast globally – be it special Royal occasions, live sporting events or concerts. Vortex has also provided solutions for film, particularly where the camera and lens loads are high. Advances in stabilised head technology and the reduced size of film cameras now make Vortex an ideal piece of kit for filming on location.
I’ve used Cammotion many times, most recently filming U2 in Trafalgar Square London. We needed a WOW factor opening shot and the Vortex camera system was written into the creative of the show right from the start in order to give us that. In that environment, it was quite simply the only product that could have delivered the shot that we needed. Always brilliant.
The Vortex camera system really brought a new dynamic to Channel 4’s Glorious Goodwood coverage. The racecourse is nestled on top of the Sussex Downs and its beauty was enhanced by the superb pictures generated from different heights – it felt as though we had a helicopter just hovering over this spectacular venue for the duration of the broadcast – it was breathtaking.
