Academy Award Winners
In February 2006 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, presented Technical Achievement Awards for the year 2005 to Frank Fletcher and Dave Sherwin. This was for the introduction and continuing development of the Power-Pod modular camera head system.
A&C's range of Remote Heads are probably the most versatile and practical available to the Film and Television market. From the beginning our Engineers at A&C knew what they wanted to achieve, a Head that the operator would have built for himself - one that delivers exceptional performance and smooth response without compromising reliability.
Our range of POWER-POD and PEE-POD Remote Heads have achieved their success by proving their ability to capture those shots which would otherwise be too dangerous or impractical, whether filming birds in flight, a sports event or any hostile environment. Our Remote Heads cope with it all, keeping the crew at a safe distance and obtaining the moves that would normally be impossible.
Buying Remote Heads involves a lot of choices and decisions, we are happy to help with advice and information. Please contact Frank Fletcher to get first hand advice on our range of products, their suitabilty and first class features.
