For one night a year, the brightest stars in Hollywood aren´t spoiled starlets or megalomanaical directors. They are the scientists and engineers who create the technology that underlies all of modern filmmaking. On February 18, the Academy presented the 78th Annual Scientific and Engineering Awards to these worthy inventors.
Anatoliy Kokush, Yuriy Popovsky and Oleksiy Zolotarov for the concept and development of the Russian Arm gyro-stabilized camera crane and the Flight Head. The Russian Arm and Flight Head opened new possibilities for filmmakers. With the ability to be mounted on the roof of almost any car, this remotely-operated crane and camera head can move smoothly in a 360 ° circle around the car, even while it is being driven at high speeds by actors, creating heretofore impossible perspectives.
Anatoliy Kokush for the concept and development of the Cascade series of motion picture cranes. The lightweight structure of the Cascade and Traveling Cascade Cranes enables the filmmaker to achieve heights of up to 70 feet, allowing for the placement of the camera in otherwise impossible locations.
One highlight of cinec is the cinecAward, which is awarded in six different categories. The award is presented by the Bavarian Society for the Advancement of Film Technology (FGF), and awarded to innovative and trendsetting products and developments of the Motion Picture Technology.
The Cinec Award comprises a certificate and a statue which is inspired by the Munich symbol “Bavaria”.
