“It all started from a simple sketch in Photoshop by Marcello. Creating the “perfect rig” it’s almost the “Sacred Graal” of filmmakers, and Marcello makes no exception. He always liked to experiment and test all those gimmicks that you find on the web. When he bought the new Blackmagic Pocket 4k it became clear that “the world out there” was looking for a battery that could overcome the limitations of the camera. Marcello is a fan of handled shooting and to have a “pocket” camera with a huge V-Lock battery was not what he had in mind.”
