In the summer of 2009, Reel Water Productions teamed up with expert rigger and engineer Matt Maddaloni to design a remote control cable cam. Complete with pan/tilt/roll, zoom and focus control, and a motor that drives the thing at over 60kph we had an amazing year in the field.
This sequence shows the sort of footage Bryan Smith and Matt Maddaloni's new 'cable cam' can produce. For a video maker, this is absolutely mind blowing with one of the highest 'how the f*** did they do that" factor I've seen in ages. Seriously, seriously impressive.
There's a good interview with Bryan about this and his current project, The Season, on PaddlingInstructor.com.
