    Many thanks to Polecam from Henry Landgrebe.

    As the Minicam Supervisor on the Ron Howard feature film "The Heart Of The Sea", I worked very closely with Steffan and the his team at Polecam to develop a waterproof housing and camera system that filled our demanding brief. They modified 4 of their housing to meet our needs giving us iris & focus control of the cameras. They even provided spares as we were not only shooting in studios but in extreme locations too.

Not to mention the ease of moving my Polecam around the entire complex, inside and outside!
