CULVER CITY, Calif. — Midas Mount today announced a limited time offer on their SnapFocus Follow Focus System, HitchHiker Shoulder Support Rig and SkaterailSlider Camera Slider. The slider, shoulder rig and follow focus, which will retail for a total of over $2,000 when they hit retail stores this summer, are available for a package deal of only $1,299, only at www.MidasMount.com.
The SnapFocus Follow Focus System was a project launched in May of 2012 by Brandon David Cole, founder of Midas Mount Camera Support Systems and inventor of the SnapFocus Technology. The project raised $110,000 in under 30 days and created a buzz in the filmmaking world, attracting endorsements from Directors JJ Abrams and Jimmy Hayward and DSLR Personality Philip Bloom.
“The Kickstarter experience was a great way for us to connect directly with filmmakers and literally kick-start our brand,” said Cole, “and this package deal is our way of reaching back out to filmmakers again before our product line hits retail stores this summer.”
Cole, a feature filmmaker and ex-professional BMX rider, married his passion for filmmaking and knowledge of bicycle mechanics when he devised a way to actuate focus with brake levers with the help of his neighbor Harry Gramig, a retired inventor and machinist. Midas Mount has sold dozens of prototypes over the past year to filmmakers all around the world.
Filmmakers can pre-order the SnapFocus Follow Focus System and HitchHiker Shoulder Support Rig as a bundle – which will ship by July 2013 – and get the 4-foot SkaterailSlider Camera Slider free – which will ship within two weeks of purchase. Go to www.MidasMount.com and email the Midas Mount Team through the site’s contact form for the offer code.
“It’s an awesome deal and a great way for filmmakers to build an entire indie filmmaking production arsenal in one fell swoop.” Says Cole.
