Over the last 10 years Gordon has acquired a combination of some of the most technologically advanced lightweight camera moving products available. He has continued to modify and synthesize this package into a streamlined camera conveyance system that can be carried by a small local crew, into remote locations, setting a whole new creative benchmark while conserving valuable production resources. The creative flexibility garnered by this hybrid system brings a new level of production value to locations so remote that they would normally be relegated to a "camera only" scenario with today's budgets. Gordon offers special introductory rates on his services with equipment.

The Steadicam Tango was developed by Garrett Brown as a the Ultimate Hand Held Camera Conveyor. Basically a jib on a Steadicam Archer with a range of literally lens below ground level to a height of over 8 feet. Cameras the Tango will fly range from Gordon's GH-4, to his GoPro Hero III Black for underwater to above, or the Red Epic which Gordon flew recently to shoot a 5K race.
For those long slow Jib shots Gordon uses his 12' Microjib, with the Ronin which works equally well on the Suction/Car Mount or Microdolly allowing smooth, silent, remote pan and tilt of the moving camera. With the integration of the MX Dollymotor system, time-lapse through high speed moves can be accommodated.
The advantage of Gordon's modified system is the crossover compatibility of components with fast set up times in light weight, waterproof cases and backpacks to allow high production value image acquisition in difficult, remote locations.
Ronin on the Microjib.
The developer of the Microdolly; Jerry Johnson did a remarkable job of designing and manufacturing light weight system. The Microdolly weighs in under 10 pounds with 13' lengths of straight track as thin as tent poles which sets up in under 5 minutes and can carry upwards of 50 lbs. Gordon has a full 20' diameter circle of track and integrated MX Dollymotor. Remote location moving time-lapse is a fast easy setup with remarkable flexibility.
Gordon's "Suction Mount Kit" provides mounting in almost any position on boats, airplanes, cars, bikes, even at high speeds, tested at Las Vegas Raceway at over 100 mph the system performed flawlessly.
The basic 12' Microjib disassembles to fit in a backpack, weighs in at 15 pounds and carries cameras twice its weight with ease. The Microjib is designed to counterbalance with water, rocks, sand or anything else handy you want to put in the basket, so there is no need to bring weights just to counter balance the camera. The Microjib's silent operation allowed Gordon to use it in a hypnosis session with with a UFU abduction victim on a pilot program with Pilgrim TV for Discovery. "The silent operation of the jib is the only way we could get the shot of both the hypnotist and the subject given the tight space on location"
