Shotover F1 & M1

Wildlife Photographer and Filmmaker Florian Schulz Talks Working with The SHOTOVER F1, Adding an M1 to His Equipment, and Life During Quarantine

“Because of the COVID shutdowns, many film shoots got cancelled,” explained Schulz. “However, being at my base in Alaska has been ideal to complete post-production on my two arctic film projects with Terra Mater and also be available for more spontaneous film shoots. Just this past month I was able to put the M1 to work for a multi-week shoot for the BBC here in Alaska.

While no one knows for certain when things will be back to normal, once the shutdown is lifted, Schulz has big plans for his M1, including using it on multiple wildlife shoots with cranes on compact boats and mounting it on helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, across Alaska and Baja California, Mexico - for wildlife projects.

“With more flexibility and less need for counterweights on smaller helicopters, I’m really looking forward to expressing my visual ideas with the help of the M1 and its cutting-edge technology,” said Schulz. “Having only two cases to transport the system in will be a nice change as well
