Australian Office

Helifilms' Cineflex gyrostabilised camera system was chosen for the aerial coverage in director Sue Brooks' new Australian film, Subdivision. The film will be released August 20th. Speaking about the Cineflex, Producer, Owen Johnston said it "performed its magic in the few moments of sun we had. There are some drop dead gorgeous shots. One thing I can tell you is the steadiness is unbelievable. Some people will think that we have computer animated the whole thing! You did a great job. We are very happy with the results".

South African based DP, Skip Margetts, recently shot aerials for Peter Jackson's new sci-fi feature film, District Nine, directed by Neill Blomkamp.

The film is set in South Africa's district 9 which is home to an alien refugee population. Human's have waited for either a hostile attack or great advances in technology - none of which have arrived. The world's nations are now unsure how to deal with these refugees and humans' patience is running out.

The film is being released in Australia this Thursday August 13th and in the US on August 14th.
