It is like an invisible track in the sky. So effective. Lovely work on the GH3. MoVI just looks so convenient to operate. It is going to be great for run & gun documentary shooters travelling light too and being able to pull of shots like that in almost any location. Adds so much production value. Congratulations to Vincent and everyone involved.

A-MA-ZING !! Very well done Vincent, Henning and the rest of the crew ! The shots look incredible and spectacular, the Movi makes it possible to create shots that before this morning I thought were only possible with hollywood type budgets. Absolutely amazing. It's still too expensive for an enthusiast like me, but this is only the beginning, next year at NAB there will probably be even cheaper versions / alternatives. What this video also shows is that stable camera movement is a large factor in the perceived quality of a video, wether it's shot with a $1300 GH3 or $12000 1DC seems to be of lesser importance, in my opinion.

Great work but this is NO GAME CHANGER. This rig has been on the market for the past 2 years... several chinese companies have been selling these for aerial filming. They are old news and don't cost $15K. The one that can handle a RED camera retails for about $4 K. You can buy simpler ones for $1K. This is simply ripping off old technology and calling it a game changer.

Wow! There's no need to be hesitant to use the term "game changer. "I know you're appropriately careful, so two safety questions about shooting: How were the 4 of you secured in that helicopter? How did you keep for the roller blading shooter a clear and safe path on a Manhattan street?

Cool concept, but not any more convenient than a steadicam (not to mention more jittery).

This was amazing, and most definitely worth 3 dollars. I got chills from the extra GH3 footage in the beginning. That long cut of mountain bikers was incredible. (Definitely disagree with Molly. It's way more convenient than a steadicam, being much smaller and lighter, and the separation of jobs of camera position vs aim/focus allows for a lot of creative possibilities. Not to mention being wayyy cheaper, too.)

SSSSS

incredible. do the gyros give chatter / feedback / vibration? i guess what i'm wondering is, given battery life, could an operator run with this for hours at a time ?

This is the device we have all been waiting for, no longer will creatives be hampered by not having huge amount of resources. Surprised it took so long, the technology has been around for quite a while now. And yes, it is a game changer for smaller productions.

Great to see your low altitude aerial tech going into a hand held gimbal. Revolutionary! Love the hand offs and the remote operating. So much film making is being done in post. This will bring the creativity back into the hands of the operators. Literally. Fantastic!

Wow! Suddenly every form of personal transportation is more interesting for filmmaking. Not just skates -- my scooter, a motorized skateboard, even that electric unicycle I've been wanting. Thanks for this, and what an interesting charity -- never heard of it, but what a nice idea.

About Vincent Laforet

Joined 4 years ago

Vincent, a three-time winner at the prestigious 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, is a director and Pulitzer Prize–winning photographer who is known for his forward-thinking approach to image-making and storytelling. In addition to having been commissioned by just about every important international publication—including Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, and Life—Vincent is considered a pioneer both for his innovative tilt-shift and aerial photography and in the field of HD-capable DSLR cameras. In fact, his short film Reverie, the first 1080p video shot with a still camera, was seen by more than 2 million times on the first week of its release in 2009. Vincent is a member of the Director’s Guild of America and a DP with Local 600.

Vincent, who was born in 1975, began his photography career at the age of 15. He started as a photojournalist, honing his abilities by landing internships with newspapers such as The Los Angeles Times and with Reuters. By the time he was 25, he had established himself as the youngest staff photographer for The New York Times, and by the time he left, he had a Pulitzer for feature photography under his belt. “His images stir with life,” PDN wrote of him in a 2003 “One to Watch” profile. “Athletes are colorful heroes ripped from comic book pages while his wartime photographs successfully wander between the unimaginably large scale and the touchingly human.”

In 2005, American Photo named him one of the “100 Most Influential People in Photography,” and his work has been recognized in the Communication Arts and PDN annuals and by the World Press Photo Awards, the Pictures of the Year Competition, the Overseas Press Club, the National Headliners Awards, and the Pro-Football Hall of Fame. And the accolades continue to come his way. In June 2010, he was honored with a Gold, Silver, and a Bronze in the Titanium category at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival for his work as the director on the groundbreaking Canon “Beyond the Still” competition, which he spearheaded with Grey Advertising.

“It’s not just the laundry list of awards that sets Laforet apart, though,” noted The FStop magazine in a 2010 interview with Vincent, whose fine-art prints have been exhibited worldwide and are part of numerous private collections. “It’s his steady and unique growth as a photographer. From shooting weddings [as a teen] to the NBA finals in college to his job at the Times and now his much publicized move to commercial photography and motion work, it’s been a long and fruitful evolution.”

Since 2006, Vincent himself has charted this evolution on his blog, blog.vincentlaforet.com/, which has become a must read in the photographic and filmmaking communities, attracting more than 3,000,000 visitors each year. His combination of candor and expertise have made him highly sought after as a consultant (for companies such as Apple, Canon, Manfrotto, Lexar, X-Rite, and Zeiss), a keynote speaker, and an instructor. Vincent, who has been profiled on CNN and Good Morning America and in dozens of publications, has served as an adjunct professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and at the International Center of Photography.

He is represented as a commercial director by the Los Angeles & New York Based production company "Accomplice," and as a photographer by the New York–based agency Stockland Martel. Vincent currently resides in Manhattan Beach, California, with his wife, Amber, son, Noah, and daughter, Eliana.
