Supporting the Arts in UK
|Leading UK equipment and freelance hire company Picture Canning's Staff Cameraman Colin Weller has uncovered the literary benefits of Miller's Arrow Hd fluid head and HD tripod read. Pictured here in production on GV's BBC 4's Readers & Writers program, Colin travels the UK, shooting backgrounds and interviews with writers as the interviewer hits the author with reader's questions.||
Picture Canning has provided their OB truck and technical personnel for 47 Readers & Writers programmes. Colin uses the Miller Arrow Fluid Head with Sprinter Tripod as he prefers it over other support systems because of its smoothness and greater reliability. As an equipment hire company, Picture Canning has to be able to provide equipment that is sturdy and reliable enough to withstand the rigours of a different operator possibly seven days a week.
"Many of Miller's long standing competitors do not offer the same quality of build, and most importantly, the ability to provide an almost seamless spare parts and back up provision," comments Miller europe's Manager, Ian O'Connor. "What with competitive prices, a high percentage of spare parts being held at the head office, knowledgeable and pleasant sales staff, and loan equipment available should anything go wrong, Miller have a distinct advantage over their longer established European counterparts." These are all attributes demanded by Picture Canning's OB equipment and facilities department to ensure absolute reliability for clients which included the BBC and ITV.
