Miller Camera Support Equipment Sponsors 2014 BUFTA Awards

News Image
Senior high school students across Australia recently gathered for the 19th annual Bond University Film and Television Awards (BUFTA).

This year, Miller Camera Support Equipment returned as an award sponsor for the 'Best School' category in support of the next generation of filmmakers.

Miller presented 'Best School' winner Huntingtower with two Air Alloy Systems to afford students the chance to learn on professional grade camera support equipment.

"BUFTA honors students who are working hard to build their careers in the filmmaking industry, so we at Miller feel that it is important that these students have the tools available to turn their dreams into something tangible," said Greg Thomson, regional manager of Southeast Asia, Miller. "Miller was delighted to once again support BUFTA and offer the students of Huntingtower the opportunity to work with an easy-to-use, agile, durable tripod system that will help prepare them for their future in filmmaking."

The Air Alloy System (3001) consists of the Air Fluid Head and the Solo 75 2-Stage Alloy Tripod, which is designed to provide the single operator with a complete run-and-gun system. The Air Fluid Head, composed of magnesium alloy housing and precision components, comes with two positions of selectable counterbalance and a dual pan handle option.

The system's selectable leg angle locks ensure rapid stabilization at any height, with the tripod boasting an impressive range, capable of extending from 9.2 inches (234 millimeters) to 64 inches (1625 millimeters). Its sturdy alloy, magnesium design ensures durability and its new rapid lock system can lock or unlock with less than one quarter of a turn.

The tripod's Neoprene leg protection allows for exceptional grip and is ideal for users who are either carrying or setting up the tripod in extreme weather conditions.

Each year, Bond University's current film and television students organize BUFTA as part of their school curriculum. All nominees are then flown out to the event to take part in the evening and receive the full red carpet treatment.

During this year's awards program, which was hosted by Oscar-winning Australian animator Adam Elliot, a shortlist of 18 films, produced by 15 students total, were nominated for a range of categories, including Best Animation, Best Comedy, Best Documentary, Best Drama, Best Experimental and Best Music Video.
