About

An interview from the 2014 Cine Gear LA Expo at Paramount Studios with Tyler Phillips of Matthews Studio Equipment. Matthews Studio Equipment designs and manufactures quality, specialized hardware for the film, television, still photographic, and theatrical industries worldwide. In this interview Tyler talks with us about their new Polly Dolly and Slider Stand.

The Polly Dolly is an ultra-compact, portable and flexible solution for smooth tracking captured with today's modern camera systems. It was designed to be compact and easy to use by one operator with no prep time, for tracking shots that would once require at least one assistant or even a motion control system. The Polly Dolly steel flywheel allows the dolly to move slowly, smoothly, and consistently flat ground. The included Polly-Arm adjusts vertically, horizontally, and is rotatable in all directions. The Set comes with the Polly Engine, Polly Arm, Polly Surface "Track" and Track Bag; and all pieces needed to mount a camera. Other pieces listed below are sold separately.

The Slider Stand meets the demand for a strong, wide-based stand with a low working height for those using camera sliders and Speed Rail/Pipe Dolly Systems like the Dana Dolly. Baby Ballhead (3/8") Adapter, Magic Finger and Stand/Spud Adapter sold separately.

The Slider Stand comes standard with two rocky mountain legs for easy leveling on hills, mountainsides, rocky environments, stairs and most other uneven terrain. As a comparison, the Slider Stand minimum working height measures one foot (30cm) lower than the standard low boy combo, giving the camera operator a POV range from hip to eye level.
