03 Apr Cliff and the Drones

Cliff and the Drones — sounds like a killer rock band.  Well, we think Cliff is a rocker. Studio B Films recently had the pleasure of working with cinematographer, Cliff Traiman, who knows a little something about flying cameras. With the current drone craze, we thought we’d ask Cliff about the allure of working with copter cameras. How did you get into drone camera work?

22 Jan Feeling the Joy of Our New 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer

  We have added a new tool to our visual storytelling tool kit — the Ronin 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer. And we’re loving it. The stabilizer became a phenomenon about a year ago at NAB. It’s a fantastic way to move the camera through space in ways that were previously impossible. Dan Williams, our in-house digital camera tech and rental manager, mastered the art of operating the Ronin in no time flat. Check out this demo reel we created to show off some of what it can do.
