Traditionally the crane arm has been the equipment of choice for elevated shots (moving and non-moving), 'ride on' camera operating or carrying a Steadicam operator for intricate 'one-shot' movements (where a step on/step off platform is fitted to the end of the crane arm).
Chapman UK supply fixed arm camera cranes and bases for a wide range of Film & TV production needs. The Cranes afford you a safe and reliable means of achieving camera positions and dynamic shots at different heights and distances, whether you're in the studio or on location (see photos). All the Chapman UK cranes are proven designs used on many different productions every year. Each crane is supplied with a qualified technician.
Chapman UK cranes can be configured for different tasks (lengths, lifting weight etc). They are compatible with our tracking vehicles (depending on the size of the crane) or are supplied with their own bases. Smaller crane arms such as the Stinger are supplied with a custom modified Dolly as standard. The Cranes can also be fitted with our Remote Heads (see individual features & descriptions) and each crane can be pre-configured in a multitude of different lengths, for different set-ups.
