Togo Mount - Documentary Aerial Solutions
Aerial Marine Media will be using their revolutionary Togo Aerial Mount to shoot stabilised video of the sea trials of a new ship in the Malacca Straits in March 2016
The mount evolved from scenarios where clients require professional quality aerials at short notice for corporate or documentary productions and an expensive Cineflex system may not be available to suit the budget. One such client needed stable imagery of the construction of the port of Lome, in the African country of Togo and the only aircraft available was a Cessna 172. There was no suitable mount available locally for this scenario, so "necessity being the mother of invention" Aerial Marine Media invented one.
The Togo Mount has 2 x K8 gyro stabilisers and can be installed inside in any fixed wing or rotor wing aircraft in about 2 mins. This was the mount that aerial DOP Laurie K Gilbert used to shoot the survey footage of KL Telekom Tower for the opening sequence of Mission Impossible Rogue Nation. It was also used for shooting a jungle aerial sequence for The Amazing Race in Sabah.
