Shane Peel uses his Compass 12 Solo 75 Carbon Fibre System on his latest short-film

Shane Peel, Australian photographer and writer, has used his Compass 12 Solo 75 Carbon Fibre System from Miller Camera Support Equipment on his latest project, Secret Garden.

 

Secret Garden is a multi-layer project that not only shares the beauty of Papua New Guinea and its culture, but also proposes the implementation of the Sustainable Surf Management plan created by Andrew Abel, a Papua New Guinea national, as a way to add value back into an area that has been over-exploited for its natural resources through adventure tourism.

 

With many tricky long telephoto shots of various surf scenes throughout the film, Peel needed equipment that allowed for a timely setup, so no shots were missed, as well as reliably stable and smooth pans.

 

“We spent most of our time aboard a charter boat and I knew I would need exceptional reliability from the equipment I brought, which is why I used my go-to Compass 12 Solo 75 Carbon Fibre System”, has said Shane Peel, House Pictures director of photography and co-director. “Being able to pick up the system and drop a rig on the head knowing that it isn’t going to lock off or pan while going up and down the ladders of the boat or moving through the thick tropics was all the assurance I needed”.

 

While on location, Peel faced a number of challenges, including having to chase down a specific sunset shot with only minutes before the moment was gone. “Due to the fact that I could have the sticks up, head level, and a cam mounted super-fast was the most important feature”, has explained Peel. “If we had been using a more complex and less reliable system, I would have definitely missed the shot”.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of another one of Shane Peel’s amazing projects, especially one that brings up important environmental and social issues”, has said Charles Montesin, marketing manager, Miller Camera Support Equipment. “The Compass 12 Solo 75 Carbon Fibre System was built with users like Shane Peel in mind by giving them the ability to capture the necessary shots to bring their artistic vision to life”.

 

The seven-minute short film is to be presented to the Papua New Guinea Ministry of Tourism and Arts, a potential producer of a full-length documentary on the topic. Once the film receives a green light, the production team is aiming to deliver the finished product in mid-2017.
