About Performance Filmworks, Inc./Dean Bailey
The NEW Performance Filmworks Edge™ System provides a unique combination of performance, flexibility and precision. The Edge™ is the newest generation of gyro-stabilized camera heads and remote arms in the marketplace, and is a turnkey solution for all your filming needs. Upon arrival on your set, the Edge™ is completely assembled and ready to go. Just back it out of its custom-built transport, mount the camera and you’re ready to roll.
The Edge™ System consists of:
• The Supercharged Mercedes ML 55 Camera Car
• The Edge™ Head: 3-Axis, Gyro-Stabilized, Remote Controlled Camera Head
• The Edge™ Crane: Gyro-Stabilized, Roof-Mounted, Remote Controlled Camera Crane
• Optional Accessories including Spray Deflectors, Preston Lens Control Systems and Multiple Crane Extensions giving you a reach of 8- to 26-feet.
• Our office will coordinate your crew.
• One phone call and you’re all set!
The technological advances incorporated into the new Edge™ System provide a new level of speed, performance and stability, which surpass all other equipment available. The Edge™ Crane can be quickly transformed on set into multiple different lengths, ranging from 8-feet all the way to 26-feet, and can be mounted on any vehicle, including cars, picture vehicles, trucks, SUV’s, boats, etc. Such flexibility in a roof mounted remote arm has not existed in the industry until now. These improvements, combined with increased stability of the Edge™ Head, have further heightened the performance response. The Edge™ Head can accommodate any camera system, including 3-D systems and multiple camera arrays. It can be operated using joysticks, wheels or a panbar.
Performance Filmworks has an extensive fleet of purpose-built vehicles including the signature Supercharged Mercedes ML55, the Chevy Suburban, the Audi A6 Quattro, the Toyota Tundra Off-Road Truck and other specialized vehicles including watercraft, quads, and motorcycles.
