Company Profile

Cinevate equips filmmakers with the optimal tools to achieve their creative goals. Making the ideal shot isn't always easy. We think it can always be easier, that there can be a better way. We make a point about working with filmmakers to develop and refine durable products that will help them get the shots they want faster, easier and better.

PRODUCTS:

DSLR RIG
Structure. Stability. Comfort. Cinevate’s DSLR rig combines the Proteus carbon fiber rails system with a DSLR shoot configuration that is both lightweight and tough. The kit includes a fully adjustable XY component to allow centering of the rig in front of you, and also allows for quick angle adjustments of the shoulder pad. Cinevate’s DSLR Rig offers more than just a little help—it offers endless possibilities.

PEGASUS CARBON CAMERA SLIDER
Light. Adaptable. Silent. The Pegasus Carbon camera slider glides across any solid surface, like on our lightweight 15mm carbon fiber rails, or on table tops and floors. Rig it upside-down on the rails, or on a wire system with our optional cable wheels. A feather-weight at 5lbs, it is designed for loads up to 15lbs. It is height and tilt adjustable on a tool-free mount that can be set up or broken down in a matter of seconds.

DURUS FOLLOW FOCUS
Cinevate’s Durus Follow Focus has been designed to give filmmakers complete freedom. It can be used at any height, angle, or side the shot requires. With a 1:1 gear ratio, you can pull focus with total accuracy. CNC machined body and parts keep it light and tight, and its modular design and additional parts let you use it with any camera and lens combination.

Female Filmmakers of the World Reunite: A Peek at POSH Retreat 2011
Stephen Nathans-Kelly | The men will have to continue to wonder what really goes on at POSH: A Retreat for the Female Filmmaker, but women who didn't make the 2010 event—as well as 2010 attendees who've been wondering what Team POSH will do for an encore—will get a chance to find out what all the excitement is about on November 6 when POSH 2011 kicks off in Cancun, Mexico. Last week I spoke with POSH co-founders Reagan Zugelter and Jennifer Moon to get the scoop on POSH 2011. Here's what I found out.
In the Field: DSLR Rigs and Viewfinders From Cinevate and Zacuto
Randy Panado | Here we'll talk about two manufacturers, one that got out of the gate first with a product that's become the standard for LCD viewfinders for DSLRs, and another key provider of DSLR accessories and support products that introduced its entry to the LCD hood market a few short months ago. I'll also be talking about the lightweight rigs from these manufacturers that give you more versatility when you're shooting with these LCD viewfinders. The hoods/viewfinders in question are the Zacuto Z-Finder, the current leader in the DSLR hood market, and Cinevate, Inc.'s new contender, the Cyclops. The rigs are the Zacuto Striker and the Cinevate Proteus Simplis Pro.
Traveling Light
Randy Panado | collaboration becomes a bigger part of our industry and more of us are booking weddings outside of our own local markets, either because of the nature of our online marketing, our need to book weddings in a higher price range than our market will allow, or both, traveling to gigs becomes an ever-bigger part of our businesses—even for those of us who don't live on relatively small islands. Hawaiian filmmaker Randy Panado's own reliance on remote gigs has caused him to create a "kit" that is very efficient in terms of incorporating everything he needs to produce solid work and, at the same time, being light enough for travel.

Mark Von Lanken | There are literally dozens of DSLR support devices on the market,. The challenge for all of us is to decide which support device will best fit our needs. My goal is not to steer you toward one particular model or to tell you which one I prefer, but rather to explore three different models—covering both the good and the bad—and give you better insight into each model.

Switching From Video Cameras to DSLRs
Greg Lam | We've all seen the dazzling work of our peers who have taken the DSLR plunge, and thus have a good idea of what migrating to DSLR can do for our films and our businesses. But we also know tat DSLR cameras are fundamentally different animals from their video-camera counterparts. What can we expect when we make the transition, and what do we need to know about the new skills we'll need to learn and other gear we'll need to acquire to make DSLRs work in our video workflow?

Adventures in Fusion, Part 1
Elizabeth Avery Merfeld | Last fall, Canon shook our world when it released the transformative EOS 5D Mark II, a DSLR featuring full-frame HD video and dynamic depth-of-field control. Along with others of its ilk, the 5D is revving up videographers' creativity, smearing the line between the photography and videography industries, and ushering in (some say) a new era of photo-video fusion. With several months of use under their belts, we asked a handful of early adopters for their take on how the 5D has impacted their businesses and where (if anywhere) their first forays into fusion have taken them.

In the Field: Cinevate Pegasus
Ron Dawson | A few months ago I saw a clip that StillMotion had put together for fellow Canadian company Cinevate (makers of the Brevis 35mm adapter, as well as a variety of other camera gear), starring a new slide-rail system called the Pegasus that allowed the shooter to create smooth, dollylike shots. I recently had the opportunity to test the system, and here's a look at how it performed on a series of shoots that required some smooth dolly-type shots.

In the Field: Cinevate Brevis 35
Patrick Moreau | The challenge for us as videographers, is how to achieve a very shallow DoF with sensors that are much smaller than those our photographer counterparts use to create a similar effect. The solution comes in the form of a sexy, black carbon fiber tube that attaches to the front of your camera, the Brevis 35 adapter.
