Seamless steady motion shots are among the most popular movements in all of storytelling as it allows the camera to follow any subject without the audience being distracted by the camera operator. K2productions has stayed on the cutting edge of this movement technique by taking advantage of the proven Ronin gimbal family. From large cinema cameras to small mirrorless cameras, we have gimbals that will help smoothly guide your audience from frame to frame.
The Easyrig has become an essential industry standard tool that all cinematographer’s must have in their arsenal, that is why you will find it on almost all of K2’s shoots. This body vest support system utilizes a suspension line to support cinema cameras in order to give each shot a more controlled, natural handheld shake. For narrative, commercial, or documentary film work this tool allows our operators to place a heavy cinema camera in almost any environment.
The key ingredient for sharp images and a cinematic look is a top-tier cinema lens, which is why K2productions utilizes a cinema camera package combined with a cinema lens on every shoot. Whether you are searching for a family of prime lenses, a unique zoom lens, or an anamorphic lens, K2 is prepared for any look you need. Our favorites include the Zeiss CP.3 Compact Primes, Angenieux Cinema Zoom, and Fujinon MK with Anamorphic adapter. All of these lenses have their own look and feel that will match your specific vision.
Steadicam / DPs & Packages
The Steadicam is K2’s favorite and most-often-used cinema tool. It allows us to create incredible, free-flowing camera motions that are beautiful to watch and essential for visual storytelling. The Steadicam stabilizes the camera and mechanically isolates it from the operator’s movement, which allows for a smooth shot — even when moving quickly over uneven surfaces.

Our Jibs and Cranes allow us to capture sweeping cinematic views for the money shot you need in your production. They are useful for getting high shots, or shots which need to move a great distance horizontally or vertically, without the expense and safety issues of putting a camera operator on a crane for a crane shot or laying track for a camera dolly.
