THE BEST IN MOTION CONTROL JUST GOT BETTER

 

After an incredibly positive response to Second Shooter from filmmakers around the world, we immediately refocused and forged ahead with our continuous goal of innovating motion control gear that pushes the boundaries of what is possible. The result, is Second Shooter Plus. Second Shooter Plus is a reimagined counterpart to its predecessor and introduces features and upgrades that stem from thousands of hours in-the-field and requests from an enormous group of talented filmmakers looking to dig deeper into their craft. Kessler has always prided itself on listening and engaging our customers to design and manufacture the best products available and with Second Shooter Plus, we believe we’ve done exactly that.

BACK UP/SECONDARY RIG

As many users have found, Second Shooter is an amazing production tool and has saved users time, money and worry about not getting the perfect shot. In many cases production teams are simultaneously trying to capture time-lapses for b-roll and shooting interviews with Looping Mode on Second Shooter in more than one location at a time. It goes without saying, but in these instances a secondary Second Shooter rig could play an important role, thus making the decision to hold onto the first gen. controller a no brainer.
