Filmotechnic USA has released their award-winning catalog, showcasing the finest camera cars, arms and specialized rigs in the US. The announcement was made by filmotechnic USA Operations Manager John Urso. Filmotechnic is at the forefront of camera car systems, arms, stabilized flight heads and rigs. Recent projects include most automotive industry commercials, NCIS LA, The Closer, Major Crimes, and CSI New York, plus a variety of flight heads currently booked on numerous soon-to-be released motion pictures.
Five years ago, filmotechnic USA began sending out their hard-cover “catalog” showcasing all the latest products. Production companies across the country responded positively to the collateral, which quickly turned into a tradition. “I get calls every Spring requesting the latest book, says Urso, who wouldn’t disclose the production cost for 30,000 copies of this year’s edition. “We’re very proud of our operation and the catalog is a direct reflection of our attention to detail. We feel that filmotechnic has both the best personnel and best equipment.”
To book is to keep clients aware of the latest specs and abilities of the equipment. “The number one consideration for what vehicles/equipment is appropriate for the job is location and terrain, says Urso. “We update our website with new specs as they happen, but many producers rely on our books for basic information.”
