A court ordered auction of the assets of Kerner Company was held so that creditors could recoup losses. Auctioned off was historic camera equipment used by Industrial Light and Magic. Many parties wanted the original Vista Cruiser camera; Prop Store won it. The parts to the camera were spread across multiple lots, purchased by different owners and the goal was to ascertain the history and come together to get the parts in one place.
Here is a video of Craig Barron, from the Academy (Matte Department ILM) and Mike MacKenzie (Head of Camera Engineering at ILM) talking to Brandon Alinger (Prop Store).
The video was shot on Catherine Craig's iPhone by Caleb Stenzinger. It was shot in the back of the truck on the auction pick-up day, November 1st, 2011.
