An interview from the 2014 Cine Gear LA Expo at Paramount Studios with Tom Guilmette on behalf of Kessler Crane. Kessler is an industry leading manufacturer of innovative tools for filmmakers including: camera cranes and jibs, camera motion control systems, camera sliders and dollies, tripods and heads and other camera mounting and grip accessories. In this interview Tom talks with us about the Kessler line of jibs & sliders, including the Kessler Parallax, UniDrive, CineDrive and the Pocket Jib.

The Kessler Parallax system provides automatic panning and fixed-point shooting capabilities to the Kessler line of sliders. Previously only capable with motorized panning devices, Kessler Parallax accomplishes inward and outward panning shots, providing users a second axis to their linear movements. The Kessler Parallax’s non-intrusive design allows users to choose between automatic panning or standard linear sliding without removing the Parallax bar.

The Pocket Jib Traveler is Kessler's newest and most compact Pocket Jib designed for shooters that require an ultra-portable jib solution. The Pocket Jib Traveler is 27 inches in length when collapsed and has a circular travel distance of 72 inches when fully extended. It surpasses other ultra-portable jibs through is unique design and light footprint, providing shooters with the perfect travel companion as they trek through extreme environments to capture the perfect shot.

UniDrive is a 3-axis, digital closed loop servo motion control system that provides the precision and accuracy of Kessler’s full-featured multi-axis and multi-keyframe digital motion control system CineDrive at an analog price. Featuring 100% repeatable motion control for live-mode, looping, time-lapse and stop-motion applications.

Kessler CineDrive is a revolutionary multi-axis camera motion control system that puts the emphasis on filmmaker creativity. Never before has any one system provided the power and versatility required to give users multi-axis control that is configurable enough to meet the needs of filmmakers in the studio and in the field as elegantly as CineDrive does.
