October 27, 2010 by Screenmag
Geo Film Group, and Kerner 3D Technologies, a division of the Marin, CA-based Kerner Group, announce that Geo Film will make the Kernercam KC7000 3D camera rig available for rental to the LA production community starting in November.
Geo Film Group and Kerner 3D Technologies will be displaying the Kernercam 3D camera rig next week -- November 3-4 -- at the Createasphere Entertainment Technology Expo at the Marriott Hotel in Burbank. The companies will be located at Booth # 417.
Tim Partridge, President, The Kerner Group, said, "We have known George and his team for many years, and are delighted that they have chosen to offer the Kernercam for rentals in LA. Geo Film Group is well known for providing state of the art technologies to production companies, and they have already had experience with 3D production. More importantly, they provide well-trained technicians, along with their equipment, which is exactly what is needed in these early days of 3D cinematography. With Geo Film, we know that productions using the Kernercam will be well supported, and will be able to get the results they want quickly and easily, and at a price they can afford."
Adds George Nolan, president/founder, Geo Films Group, Inc., "For the past 20 years, our company has focused on providing simple, reliable and cost effective equipment to the film and broadcast industry. While providing camera support for some recent 3D productions, we started looking for smaller, lighter and less labor intensive 3D systems. The timing could not have been better when we were approached by The Kerner Group to see if we would be interested in distributing their new 3D rig. The Kerner 3D Kernercam rig is what the industry needs today to make 3D production as easy as 2D production."
Kerner 3D Technologies develops and offers a range of camera rigs for easy and accurate capture of 3D content. The Kernercam KC7000 systems are beam-splitter rigs of varying sizes, available for broadcast or cinematic applications.
The Kernercam 3D system was recently used by Emotion Studios to shoot a 3D documentary for NVidea, and by Depth Q Media to shoot drift racing footage for the promotion of Toyota's Scion brand. It was also used during the production of actor David Arquette's short 3D film, "The Butler's In Love," which recently opened the Annual HollyShorts Film Festival at the Director's Guild of America Theatre in Los Angeles and was also featured at the 3D Film Festival in Hollywood.
