While i regularly operate a range of other companies stabilised and non-stabilised remote heads, I am fortunate to part own another company, Motion Remote Ltd. Through Motion Remote we are able to offer a range of fully stabilised Flight Heads to rent. Motion Remote also rents and demos Black-Teks fantastic motorised Tower riser and vacuum suction mount systems. This enables us to attach our, and other companies, stabilised heads to pretty much anything. Our primary focus and vast experience lends us to specialise in car to car filming, but we have used these heads on aerial cable systems, telescopic cranes and much more.
Filmotechnic Flight Head Mini 3
The Flighthead Mini 3 is the smallest and lightest of the Flight Heads from Filmotechnic. It’s designed around taking an Alexa Mini/Red with 17-80 Optimo and clip-on matt box or similar. Due to its lightweight carbon fibre design and stabilisation performance you can achieve unusual shooting angles while ensuring very stable images. It can be used on any size of camera crane, jib arm, tracking vehicle, dolly or cablecam that is rated to take the weight. It can be controlled by either handwheels, joystick or optional panbar and rigged in over or underslung configuration. (also featured in the photograph at the top of the page while I was filming the commercial for Fast & Furious Live)
Filmotechnic Flight Head Apex
The Flighthead Apex is a smaller and lighter weight Flighthead for its class, than standard from Filmotechnic, that can still take any size camera package. Due to its smaller design and stabilisation performance you can achieve unusual shooting angles while ensuring very stable images in a restricted set space. It can be used on any full size camera crane, jib arm, tracking vehicle, dolly or cablecam that is rated to take the weight. It can be controlled by either handwheels, joystick or optional panbar and rigged in over or underslung configuration.
The Tower is a remote controlled riser for the lighter remote heads like the Flight Head Mini & the Shotover G1. Raise and lower the camera in shot. It can be mounted on any vehicle and is optimised for high speed tracking.
Black-Tek Tower & suction mount system
The vehicle mount kit is the most versatile system for rigging a camera or the Black-Tek tower to any flat surface especially cars. With its clever articulating design and speed clamps you can easily change between different shapes of suction cups depending on the available surface.
