Filmotechnic USA, one of the largest camera car companies in the world, introduces the newest edition to its fleet, the Electric EVU. Filmotechnic is known worldwide for its Academy-award winning fleet of stabilized camera car systems. Filmotechnic headquarters and fabrication facilities are located in Los Angeles, with support offices in Detroit, Atlanta, Dallas and Orlando.
According to Filmotechnic manager John Urso, the Electric EVU was developed to facilitate the need for camera car shots where emissions or noise are not wanted. “There is demand for a camera car that can be used where internal combustion vehicles are prohibited, such as on a soundstage,” he said. “The EVU also works great on noise sensitive shoots, such as filming horses for a Western.”
The EVU operates in silence while capturing all the action with fluid acceleration. With zero emission, the EVU expands the possibilities of getting the best shot. One rig configuration features the Filmotechnic’s Telescoping U-Crane, the noted robotic crane, paired with the company’s Flight Head Mini, a fully digital gyro-stabilized flight head. “This is just one of many arm/flight head combos this vehicle can handle,” said Urso. “We can provide a variety of rig options based on the job at hand, fully customized to meet a customer’s specific need.”
