Soap Lake, WA (September 18, 2013) - Gavin Seim of Seim Effects and Atomic Feather Design has announced the launch of a Kickstarter.com crowd funding campaign for SPEEDCinema®, a portable multi-configuration camera support system for smooth Time Lapse and Cinema motion effects. It features a groundbreaking connecting rail called SPEEDTube that offers a variable length connecting track in a highly portable package.
Pre-orders are being sold on Kickstarter with the goal of raising $25,000 between September 12 and October 12, 2013. Funds from orders will be used to ramp-up production of the company's versatile new system. Product delivery for the made-in-America system is planned for the first quarter of 2014.
"As a photographer and filmmaker who is often working on location, I discovered a need for a more versatile dolly system for our cameras," said Gavin Seim, president of Seim Studios. "SPEEDCinema is a motion system that takes a unique approach - it's a modular rig that's versatile and portable. It uses connecting SPEEDTubes that offer endless length choices. That combined with easily reconfigurable wheels and mounts means that instead of lugging around big rigs, or calling a tiny rail 'good enough', SPEEDCinema packs SHORT and reaches LONG. This allows videographers, filmmakers and even still photographers to add professional motion to their video or time-lapse photography in a package that can go anywhere."
