More Arrow HD for growing Game Creek truck stable
Game Creek Productions’ Australian connections continue to grow as cheif Engineer Paul Bonar adds another 12 x 1441 Arrow HD Carbon EFP support systems to his growing Miller inventory. Game Careek are already utilising Miller's rugged, yet highly portable EFP trpiods and heads with the mighty 53’ Southern Cross mobile production truck. Supplied by Miller Camera Support LLC (USA), the Arrow HD systems feature Miller’s heavy duty 2-Stage carbon fiber legs with mid level spreader, and provide support for the New Hampshire-based company’s Sony BVP-950 cameras and Canon 21 x 7.8 ENG lens combinations.
Game Creek’s flagship truck was so named by President Pat Sullivan after he witnessed an awesome display of the Southern Cross star constellation whilst climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 2001. The name and memories of Australia obviously stuck.
With the industry’s largest Digital signal router, a 195 x 384 PESA Cheetah fed off an 80in/40out GVG Calypso Switcher, Southern Cross also features a 51’ expanding area, making it the largest physical and technical truck in the industry. A sports coverage regular, the key duties for Southern Cross include general entertainment events as well as national sporting programs like The Super Bowl, the NAB Finals and the NBA All Star Game.
Game Creek’s director of engineering Paul Bonner is responsible for sueprvising installation on Game Creek's latest truck, and helps keep it and the company’s other six trucks on the road chasing weekly events that may be a thousand miles from each other.
