We’d like to share two cases happened last week.
#A vehicle commercial Ad#
Typical situation for handhold monitor, since the director and DP always need walking around and direct the crew, and most of directors prefer to observe the vehicle moving by close look while comparing with the image in real time but not just sitting behind the screen.
Also, after a shot was taken, the director often need to assemble the crew for playback and make adjustment.
In this case, the shooting started from 7:00 am to 6:00 am next day, which could be a big challenge for the director and DP only just holding the monitor if it wasn’t Vaxis Storm 058 monitor with such light weight.
The deputy director got a huge bonus from Vaxis Storm 058 monitor since he need monitoring the image while hiding behind the backseat, with the small size of the monitor and no cable limitation, he was able to have a comfortable position in the limited space without exposure to camera.
#A beverage commercial Ad#
Crews always catch every minute for outdoor shootings.
Each second matters, each illustration and each adjustment matters, which is why the director rather sitting as close to the scene as he can.
The 058 monitor hood and wrist band are lovely accessories this case like this.
#Comments from scenes#
“This could be the lightest wireless solution so far, back before, I have to use a cage fit with a receiver and monitor, and a 1.5m cable with a battery on my waist” ----A director
“Still can be improved on the screen, but definitely good enough for focus puller, considering it quite portable, I won’t use other equipment for moving camera” ----A focus puller
“With all the necessary features centralized in this one, plus Vaxis has good and stable signal. Focus pulling is always under heavy pressure, especially when shooting a big star, signal or image problem could be the worst thing to happen” ----A focus puller
“Battery endurance is one important thing we care about, this monitor can last for 2-3 hours, which is basically enough, and those small batteries are easy to bring” ----An equipment manger
“From what I see now, this monitor is ordered for every outdoor shooting, light and small, all the accessories came with are pretty useful, the wooden handhold, wrist band, hood are practical stuff, when monitors are not enough, we can just use it as a sitting monitor with noga arm attached.” ----An equipment manger
Introduce Vaxis full range wireless solution set, up to 3000ft signal transmission range, for director, DP, and focus puller.
Vaxis, your wireless power.
