Kevin Shahinian’s success can be attributed to his determination and unwillingness to accept ‘no’ as an answer. “I’ve always had the kind of mentality that I needed to prove myself. I didn’t have doors opened to me… it wasn’t easy for me to achieve my goals”.
Kevin embraces each new project and concept film with a relentless work ethic and limitless vision, which continues to inspire others in the industry. Producing such inspiring films as SNÖ has helped put his company, Pacific Pictures, on the map.
When asked about his style, Kevin states, “My way of shooting is more traditional, epic - very slow, fluid, lets play stuff out in the frame.” Cinevate’s Ballare Dolly lends well to this style. “We did a shot in one of the concept films where we had a four-way split screen, tracking four fluid masters and I needed the subject to walk straight forward on camera. They would have been walking on the track if it weren’t for the extension. There is a lot of versatility that you don’t see typically on an independent production-type dolly that you do on a Ballare Dolly.”
Cinevate is honored to be a part of Kevin and Pacific Pictures’ creative vision, of their desire to SHOW THE WORLD.
