Polecam Systems Receive Prestigious Award

UK company Polecam Systems has announced at NAB 2014 Expo in Las Vegas a new global annual award for Outstanding Production Using a Polecam.
Designer of Polecam, and founder of the company, Steffan Hewitt said: "This last year we have seen a ramp up of sales as more and more creatives are discovering how Polecam can both speed up production and add production values all at the same time.
"With more than 500 rigs in use globally we are seeing the great results that creative minds can achieve with such a production tool, and so we have decided to present a new annual award for Outstanding Production Using a Polecam.
"We heard late last year that a television production company in Texas, USA, had a very busy work schedule with a host of concurrent productions, and they had discovered Polecam and were using it to an extraordinary level in many of their productions to speed up the workflow and yet add production values.
"They have a large studio complex in Dallas and further facilities in Austin but a significant part of what they are doing is shot by crews on location all around the world. This has to be done very efficiently to get the content captured to their exacting high standards, within budget, and on time.
"They were using Polecam rigs locally and globally to achieve this, and producing excellent and entertaining output showing high production values. Their use of Polecam was, and is, outstanding.
"This year we have great pleasure in presenting the Award to AMS Pictures, Dallas Texas."
The Award was accepted at NAB in Las Vegas by Joshua Moore, Head of Production at AMS Pictures, along with Taylor Witt, Senior DP. Joshua is known for his cinematography skills and in building and leading effective and creative production teams.
A prime example of this streamlined location work, now in its third series, is 'You Live in What?', a highly entertaining program for the HGTV network in the US which unearths extraordinary and amazing home conversions around the world.
