Miller's Movember Mission...

News Image
Male colleagues at Miller Camera Support Equipment have taken the opportunity to join British filmmaker Philip Bloom’s annual Movember movement.

As an incentive for others to do the same, Miller is encouraging potential Movember participants to donate a small fee and attempt to grow a moustache for a chance to win a Miller LP ’54 Classic Tripod or a Miller Air Alloy System. All proceeds will go directly to organisations that fund research for men’s prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues.

"Miller is thrilled to partner with Philip Bloom for this worthy cause, as, together, we aim to fight prostate cancer, testicular cancer and other health issues that plague the men of our generation," says Mark Clementson, managing director, Miller. "In support of Bloom and his movement, we will be donating a LP ’54 Classic Tripod to one lucky Movember participant to show our sincerest gratitude. Whether it is directly or indirectly, these issues affect all of us, so I would like to offer an advanced thank you to all those who plan to get involved."

Mr Bloom has held similar campaigns for the past four years, with his total raised now exceeding over $200,000 in the fight against prostate cancer.

Hand-built, just as Miller tripods were when first introduced in 1954, the LP ’54 Classic Tripod is not available for purchase. Only 40 were produced in honour of Miller’s 60th anniversary. Each LP ’54 is numbered and comes with its own certificate of authentication and wooden encasement, crafted from the finest Australian Blackwood.

The Air Alloy System consists of the Air Fluid Head and the Solo 75 2-Stage Alloy Tripod. Selectable leg angle locks provide rapid stabilisation at any height, with the tripod capable of extending from 9.2 inches (234 millimeters) to 64 inches (1625 millimeters). The tripod’s Neoprene leg protection allows for grip and is aimed at users who are either carrying or setting up the tripod in extreme weather conditions.

Those interested in participating in the movement are encouraged to join Philip Bloom’s moustache-growing entourage, Bloom ‘Tache, and donate 15 Euros, or approximately 25 dollars, here. Once the donation is complete, team members must forward their receipt to Movember@PhilipBloom.net in order to be eligible for the official prize draw, to take place on December 9. All proceeds collected go directly to the organisation, in support of men’s health and wellness.

The company is also encouraging participants to tweet pictures of their efforts to Miller (@millertripods), using the hashtag #millermovember.
