Stephen Goldblatt explained the need for a straight vertical rise in an old house where we didn`t have room to do it on a crane (for the movie > The Help). With the MAT-TOWERCAM we worked out a rather brisk move, panning the dolly while the TOWERCAM was booming and extending.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to use all your toys – without your invention and your support the shots would never have happened.
I no longer believe that it might be impossible to shoot any particular take that one absolutely wants and that one can envision in one's mind's eye. There is a solution for everything, whether you want the camera to dive through the air or under water like a snorkel, or (as we did in ‘Palermo Shooting’) to record an arrow's way to a man's neck along a distance of 80 metres at the speed of light or to spiral up a tree trunk and into the crown. MAT will find a solution even for the trickiest of tasks. In 30 years, I have never met a more competent partner for even the most unusual requests towards a remote camera.
When the lantern dropped through a hole in the jail-cell floor to the basement, we suspended the MAT-TOWERCAM upside down so the camera could descend all the way to the ground (during the shooting of > The Grand Budapest Hotel)
Your products are awesome!! We have to say they are the most professional camera motion systems in this industry.
Fantastic! Thanks so much again. The MAT-TOWERCAM shots are beautiful! (in the movie > Only Lovers Left Alive). Many people have asked how we got those shots and I am quick to point out it was not without the TOWERCAM!
Your specialized TOWERCAMs are so fantastic. Thanks for a great job on a very tough show (the Oscar Show).
The MAT-TOWERCAM helped me to find difficult perspectives and camera positions that a person normally cannot take.
Wim and I were completely enthusiastic about the possibilities of finding new perspectives in this almost endless space at the scene with Dennis Hopper in the Palermitanischen Archivio communale! (for the movie > Palermo Shooting)
