Auction is NOW Live! Proceeds raised from the online auction of Rose’s limited special edition print, “Rosignano Solvay – Tuscany 2017” will benefit the longtime entertainment industry charity committed to taking care of its own in times of need
LOS ANGELES (November 21, 2018) – SHOTOVER, a developer of high-performance aerial stabilization platforms, announced today their donation of a limited special edition print, “Rosignano Solvay – Tuscany 2017” by internationally acclaimed Belgian aerial photographer Antoine Rose to MPTF (Motion Picture & Television Fund). The work hails from Rose’s Italian Rivera collection and is one of three unique items being auctioned off by MPTF to raise funds in support of its charitable mission.
In 2017, Rose acquired one of SHOTOVER’s most widely used gyro-stabilized camera systems, the F1, and was the first to use the system for large format photography. Regularly utilized on motion pictures, documentaries, high-profile sporting events, broadcast television and advertising, SHOTOVER systems can be mounted on helicopters, ground vehicles, watercraft and almost anything that moves.
“MPTF is grateful to be selected as the beneficiary of SHOTOVER’s donation of ‘Rosignano Solvay – Tuscany 2017’ by contemporary photographer Antoine Rose,” said Bob Beitcher, MPTF’s president and chief executive officer. “Their generosity helps us to meet a rapidly increasing need to support members of our industry.”
“SHOTOVER was developed with input from some of Hollywood’s most well-known pilots and aerial cinematographers, and we are thrilled to be able to give back to the filmmaking community,” said SHOTOVER CEO Brad Hurndell.
Since the company’s launch, SHOTOVER systems have been relied upon by production companies and aerial cinematographers across the globe. Recent feature films credits include: Bumblebee, Dunkirk, Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Sicario 2: Soldado.
In January, the company was awarded a Scientific and Engineering Academy Award® for the concept, design, engineering, and implementation of the company’s flagship system the SHOTOVER K1. The online auction is LIVE NOW and will end on November 26. To bid or learn more, visit https://www.biddingforgood.com/MPTF/Fall2018.
