A few short weeks ago we showed you a trailer and behind the scenes shots from the CBS/Showtime documentary “Game of Honor” shot by our pals over at Stillmotion. Further to that post a 30 minute special aired on CBS and Showtime that gave viewers a sneak peak at how the documentary was shot. You can watch the entire 30 minute show, commercial free, at Showtime’s web site.
If you have a look at Stillmotion’s shooter showcase going back a few years, you’ll note Patrick speaking about a desire to do a documentary somewhere in the near future. Their recruitment by the NFL franchise saw them on the field at the last two Superbowls, and next thing you know, engaged in the “A Game of Honor” doc with over 100 shoot days. Naturally when Patrick approached Cinevate for some help in putting on a premiere for the doc, we jumped on it. With that in mind, Cinevate is proud to present the premiere of the film to be shown on December 19th, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. I’ll be flying there personally to take in the Premiere and personally congratulate Patrick and the Stillmotion team on their achievement. A large collection of Cinevate gear was used during the shoot including our Atlas 30 slider, Titan Mattebox, Proteus Cage System, and Simplis base plate system.
Patrick was one of Cinevate’s first Brevis35 customers going back 7 years. Since then Stillmotion has continued to push our creative envelope in supplying them with equipment that satisfied their demands of artistic versatility while surviving the punishing regimen of constant field abuse and travel. Anyone who has worked with them knows that gear is only a means to an end, and what doesn’t work, gets abandoned (or destroyed!) very quickly. I remain personally inspired and driven to match Patrick’s restlessness with gear that enables his team’s constant drive to excellence. The evening of the 19th will be a special one indeed for us.
