We nabbed rad footage at NAB 2013
Backstroking in the Bellagio fountains, watching the sun rise from the top of the Luxor pyramid with a glass of Pinot in my hand, and testing out the new MōVI M10 — these are just a few of our favorite memories from this year’s NAB show, which went down last week in Las Vegas, NV.

VIMEO EXCLUSIVE: Our BFF Vincent Laforet is always hip to the latest cutting-edge filmmaking gadgets, but no steadycam or slider compares to what he’s got his hands on this time — the MōVI. Produced by Freefly Systems, this incredible piece of gear is a 3-axis, gyro-stabilized handheld camera gimbal, and boy is it a game-changer.
Take a peek at some behind-the-scenes footage from Vincent’s latest shoot, then head to the VOD page for an exclusive look at how the MōVI works — including test footage, ungraded full-length clips, and commentary from both Vincent and the inventor of the MōVI! All proceeds from Vincent’s VOD sales will go to the Lollipo Theater Network, a charity that brings the magic of movies to children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses. Talk about paying it forward!
