“It can be such a time saver and it‘s great fun to work with. That‘s why I put quite some energy in the development and the patents of the SKATER®. Many thanks to the great team at P+S Technik, it‘s such fun working with you.“
Sebastian Cramer, Director/ DoP, who created and patented the SKATER®.
“It‘s a precision German instrument that‘s fast and simple. It sets up quickly and without any fuss because you‘re not beholden to motion control. The movement is precise and repeatable. I fell in love with it after I first saw it at Cine Gear.“
Russell Carpenter, ASC, used the SKATER® with the Genesis camera on the set of “21“.
“The SKATER® should be booked on every production, replacing the humble hi-hat with something far more useful.”
Jon Fauer, ASC.
