Hurricane Rig wins Black Diamond Award

I'm really, really pleased to announce that the Genus Hurricane 3D rig, the rig I designed, has won a Black Diamond, Best of Show award at NAB. Thanks to everyone at DVInfo that has shared information and supported me during the beta test and development phases of the rig. I could not have done it without some of the the valuable information gained from this site over the years.

Indeed, Congratulations Alister.
And is it possible to rent it in NYC for an early May shoot using Two SONY EX1's or EX3's?

Re: Hurricane Rig wins Black Diamond Award

Congrats Alister. It is well deserved. We had a lot of interest in the rig from everyone who saw it in our booth. It seems to be just the right balance of price vs quality for a very large number of indie filmmakers.

Re: Hurricane Rig wins Black Diamond Award

I apologize for asking directly like this on the Forum, but as of this date, the Hurricane rig is not yet available via the traditional suppliers (B&H, Abel Cine Tech)

Re: Hurricane Rig wins Black Diamond Award

Yes, Abel Cine are authorised dealers and should have them in stock. Talk to Andy Shipsides at Abel Cine in NY.

FilmTools in Burbank also have stock.

We are not selling through B&H at this time as we believe they do not have the expertise or after sales support needed for a 3D rig. That situation may change in the future.

Re: Hurricane Rig wins Black Diamond Award

Ah, Thank you Alister.
When I called the NYC outlet, the person was not sure if the Hurricane rig was available in NY, but did refer me to personnel in the LA office.
The person also mentioned that they believed the rig was for Phantom cameras only, but it does function with other cameras, no?

Re: Hurricane Rig wins Black Diamond Award

The Hurricane Rig works with a very broad range of cameras from small cams like the XF105 to the Sony F3 and even Red One with our optional brace kit.

We will be selling through B&H from late June.

Thanks for the kind comments guys, and of course congrats to anyone else that picked up an award.

Re: Hurricane Rig wins Black Diamond Award

For anyone in the Texas region looking for the Hurricane Rig, we have received our demo unit and are available to demonstrate it as well as take sales orders.

This is really one of the easiest rigs to use and setup. It's one of those things you appreciate more once you get your hands on it.
