Spacecam completes 3 Month Filming on “Hobbit”

Los Angeles, March 2, 2012 – SpaceCam RX has just completed a 3 month filming schedule on the Hobbit in New Zealand. The initial requirement was broken into two parts of a 2 month and 1 month
duration. These shoots involved hundreds of flight hours. The new SpaceCam RX system was configured for 3D shooting with two Red Epic Cameras. The new system incorporates many new
features including image roll, straight down pan and a multiplex single mode fiber optic line for image data transmission through a rotary joint. The system demonstrated superb reliability and completed the shooting period without a single lost shot despite an average of 7 to 8 hours in the air every day. David Nowell performed the Aerial DP duties assisted by Andrew Sych of SpaceCam. The team plans to return later in the schedule to contribute more stunning aerials to the project.
