The Beaulieu was designed to be a light-weight, non-sync sound, hand-holdable camera - not really something that lends itself to a matte box/follow focus arrangement. If your camera has the usual battery grip arrangement, it doesn't even sit level on a flat surface, and lacks any attachment points for rods. Nine out of ten of them have an Angeneiux zoom (with a rotating front element), which is better suited to round filters and a regular, screw-in lens hood than a matte box. And follow focus? That's going to bulk up your camera, ruining its nice ergonomics.
