In the summer of 2014 I had the chance to review the Movi M5 for the nice folks over at VideoMaker magazine.  The Movi M5 is a gimbal stabilized camera support that offers completely smooth handheld camera shot. Unlike the industry standard Steadicam, the Movi stabilizers are lightweight and much easier to use. Read the article here.


The best way to review a product is to USE it. The timing with the Movi M5 worked out great because I was just going into production on a short film written and directed by my cousin, Adam Chollet for which I was the DP as well as the editor. This film has a great chase sequence that was shot entirely on the Movi M5. You can watch it below.

Another opportunity to use the Movi came about on a commercial project for Black Bear Diner. The Movi M5 was used as the exclusive camera support for this "Spelunking Bear" TV ad.
