I was on a show with a piece of equipment called "the straightshooter". That particular one was shipped from NYC. I was just curious if anyone knows who manufactures them. Thanks.
If you do a google search for straight shoot'r it will take you to www.straightshootr.com, the manufacturer's website.
I like this jib arm and I often work with it on commercials paired with a Weaver/Steadman or Lamda head. It will mount directly to the Mitchell base on the arm of a Fisher 10, no Center Mount necessary. Most DoP's like the freedom this setup gives them either for handheld moves, easy camera positioning and table top work.
Here in New York the Straight Shoot'r is exclusively available for rental through Panavision New York. However there are individual Key Grips who own the Straight Shoot'r as well.
See you around.
