5 REASONS SECOND SHOOTER/PLUS ABSOLUTELY PAY FOR THEMSELVES
AUTONOMOUS MEMBER OF THE CREW
"The Second Shooter Plus makes our 1 person crew perform like two people, and two people like three. Besides getting that extra angle with motion, without having to tie down an operator, the increase in quality and speed of capturing footage has been amazing. Not having to redo a difficult slide/tilt movement 10 times before it's perfect but nailing it in first take makes us not only faster but also look much more professional to the client on set."
Klaus Pedersen, Gaffa Media
We use the Kessler Second Shooter (and now Second Shooter Plus) on almost every interview we conduct from corporate assignments, to our passion project While I’m Here | The Legacy Project. While it’s incredible on all fronts, it’s been particularly beneficial for our passion project, which is a small crew of filmmakers volunteering our time to tell stories we believe in. The Second Shooter (Plus) allows us to make our productions look and feel like a much larger team created them. As a tool, it’s become indispensable, and another member of our crew!”
Brent Foster, Foster Visuals
ADDS UNMATCHED PRODUCTION VALUE
“Second Shooter is easily one of the best investments I've made for corporate work. It allows me to sprinkle motion control into shoots where I wouldn't have the time or space. Clients are always impressed when I bring it out.
We work on large and small scale shoots. When I'm working hard to give my clients the best look for their budget, the Second Shooter allows me to have motion with a second camera even when I'm the only operator. It transforms a boring locked off second camera into a dynamic looking shot.
When we travel and I don't have the room to pack CineDrive, Second Shooter is my complete portable motion control system. It's fast to setup and gives me the same shots my clients expect from us.
Second Shooter gives me better results than I could do by hand. It allows me to step away from operating camera during an interview and instead focus on the shot and the performance of the talent.”
Tony Reale, Creative Edge
"Quick, to the point and impactful are three pillars I strive for when creating content. I look for the same features in the tools I use on a daily basis. The Second Shooter has really been my tool of choice ever since I received the beta version!! Its simplicity, effectiveness and versatility far surpasses its cost! A must have for any type of filmmaker!!"
Salman Sajun, Director | Creative
BUILT TO LAST
"We were shooting in the Alps in -20 degree weather and our client wanted to have both live-action (repeatable shots) along with timelapse shots. The Second Shooter was hands down the best system for that and saved us a ton of time, money and frozen fingers because it was so easy to setup. Pays for itself almost instantly!"
Drew Geraci, District 7 Media
A LEGITIMATE GAME CHANGER
"The Kessler Second Shooter Plus is perfect for adding movement to sit-down interviews. The super quiet digitally encoded motors, simple keyframe programming and integrated WiFi with kOS makes this Kessler product a must-have for any camera operator."
Tom Guilmette, Boston-based DP
“The Second Shooter and Second Shooter Plus has really changed the way we approach productions. The set it and forget it nature of the equipment makes it a new staple for all our productions.”
