Construct Creatives are happy to announce that they are now the proud owners of the fantastic DJI Ronin.
This 3-axis stabilised handheld gimbal system, whilst not boasting as light a spec as our Freefly MoVI M10, is able to take heavier payloads than its rival.
The DJI Ronin can take 7.25kg (that’s 16lb to you imperialists). That’s 2.72kg (6lb) more than the MoVI M10 which means a bigger lenses, more filters, and even a matt box if necessary (a feature that is just too heavy for the MoVI).
Suspended amidst the Blade Runner-esque industrial vistas that line the S. Welsh coast and the steep embankments of the indomitable Welsh hills, 21st century Wales might seem the very antithesis of renaissance Florence. However, slap bang in the middle of an industrial estate, built upon grimy gravel and concrete, Da Vinci’s Italy is brought to life… or at least a version of it anyway.
Whilst their Arri Alexas are shouldered and craned, the MoVI M10’s gimbal allows for free-flowing movement that is not constrained by the kind of special requirements that are needed for something like a 20ft crane. To get in and amongst the action packed sequences that they wanted to film, they called in our MoVI M10.
With Sky Sports pundit Olivia Wayne and stand-up comedian Matt Richardson presenting, Karim Clarke, Dan Reed, and Benson Neilson got to it with the Freefly MoVI M10, the C300, and the 5d Mk III. The Construct Creatives team had great fun filming the likes of Maria Sharapova, Jack Whitehall, and Radio One’s Greg James, to name but a few, in Evian’s own private celebrity-filled suite just off court number one.
As the championship’s official water suppliers, Evian got some great briefs for us to film. From the ‘celebrity ball boy challenge’ in which celebs had to answer as many questions correct as possible in under 60 seconds to the ‘ stars party at Wimbledon’, a gathering that Evian describes as ‘one of the biggest events of the social calendar’, we got to film with some big names in some great locations.
