At the very least I have to thank you for giving me a couple of good laughs..!!
I'm just loving the fact you've got Fredrik demoing a piece of camera kit he helped make possible.. ;-) This just wouldn't have happened before Jim crazied up the market..
I first heard of him when he was a young buck DP shooting music videos in the London... then met him as a Comercials director who had 'never' shot on anything but film. All he knew was big traditional kit and the rental market.
Now he's teaming up with people an making the exact kit he wants to use... this really is the Red effect and Jims market legacy?
Good luck and I am looking forward to seeing the final product...
Fred was the one as a Dop. Back Then, Young crazy and busy as hell shooting everything from Madonna , Kylie Minoque , Mettalica , Depeche Mode - He even did a John Lennon video No kidding..
We did a lot of commercial together - Coca Cola , and a lot of car commercial - Frederik is not a man of patience as he want´s to shot fast no mather what. I have never seen a Dp. Throwing his Camera so careless around as he did. All that matters was the shoot..
Now i very often shot for him as a DP. On his commercial as a Director - and honestly nothing has changed - hahahahahaha - Frederiks is still the same impatience guy who want´s to shoot and shoot no matter what kind of shoot it is - A lot of light is always in play, and i better be quick getting it lit. No Light .. God damn have to be even quicker.. hahahahahaha
As for trowhing camera´s around is still the same to day.. That guy has no patience what so ever - And these day´s , its his own camera´s and lenses that are being trowhn around. hahahha
I can't wait to try his rig. Because if Frederik has developed it has to be for one purpose only - To move even quicker.. And i need that if I'm be able to catch up with his impatience .. hahahhaah
Speed matters more than anything else..

I took it for a spin. The rig felt good mechanically but the current pad itself wasn't very comfortable. I also would like to see a Lightweight 15mm option more natively offered instead of as a 19mm accessory.
The LCD system though was just about perfect. My least favorite part though was the grips, I think fredrik mentioned they were going to use a different grip which is good because ringed rubber just feels uncomfortable. I wasn't able to do a side by side but subjectively I just felt like the innocinema pad was the most comfortable of the shoulder systems at NAB and I test drove pretty much every one there from the clutch to the cheap chinese redrock ripoffs.
Hello Gavin and thank you for your input.
Iam making a wider pad with an offeset for the production so it will be more comfortable and with a better offset.
Considering the 15 mm light weight I have also designe this and you can have both 19 and 15 in no time. you can have a look at the website , its the 15mm adapter and can be used for both front and back, for accesories.
This will be also possible with our new system as described above.
Here is a quick update while we are almost ready to start production.
After a great interest and feedback on NAB we have listen to every possible requirement and added many new features as well as improovments on the Titan Lite.
Now an 80mm offset handle bracket can be added so you can offset your left hand more on the left for easier and more confortable left hand line operation.
on this extension offset bracket there is also the possibility of an add on monitor grip bracket that can accomodate our snap on arm for the monitor which can be adjustable at any desired angle tooless and with friction possitioning. These 2 together provide with the best possible viewing when one wants to operate with the monitor.
Second improvment is a redesigned ergonomic shoulder pad that is wider, more confortable, follows the shape of your shoulder, and can now be angle adjusted on +/- 20 degrees.
A lot of other small improvments have been made, but the most interesting news is that we will also be offering a new configuration rig, that will work with 19mm or 15mm studio lite rods and configurations, so you can add your already existing battery rod on brackets, or other rod on accessories at the back, while still use the functionality of our unique arri standard dovetail design with 2 active cam lever locks. In the package 2 titanium rods will be included as well. The new rig is everything you need to play with ANY camera,from Scarlet and Epic to other even bigger heavier cameras, its completelly tooless as the rest of our rigs, and can be upgraded to ANY of the other 3 configurations that are already available and ready to start with production. The price will be under 3k and it includes all the features you need to fgo from tripod to shoulder and back in no time following the Arri standards. There will be 2 versions , one for 19mm, and one for 15mm studio, as well as the possibility to go from 19mm to 15mm (60mm center-center) configuration with the addition of a tooless 15mm adapter.
Also 19mm and 15 mm titanium rods will be available as well.
I want to thank everyone who came by from our stand on Nab and gave us valuable feedback, and tested our very first prototypes.
All of these will be available in our website for preorder very soon giving the best available options for the fellow operator.
