AbelCine Celebrates 25 Years with Exclusive Giveaway at East Coast Location

NEW YORK, NY, DECEMBER 22, 2014—When professional products and services provider AbelCine recently hosted its 25th anniversary celebration at its Manhattan facility, Miller Camera Support, LLC, a leader in the production of innovating camera support solutions, was pleased to auction off one of its LP ’54 Classic Tripods to freelance documentary camera operator and commercial second assistant camera Emilie Jackson.

The limited edition Miller LP ’54 Classic Tripod was hand-built from remaining components left after the last production run of the Light Professional (LP). Not available for purchase, only 40 of these rare, collector’s items were produced for worldwide distribution in honor of Miller’s 60th anniversary. Each LP ’54 is numbered and comes with its own certificate of authentication and wooden encasement, which is crafted from the finest Australian Blackwood.

“AbelCine is the place to rent gear in New York City, so I knew that this 25th anniversary celebration would be a fun, mini reunion of old friends,” says Jackson. “So many people were jealous that I won the LP ’54, and I couldn’t have been more excited. AbelCine promised to ship it to me, but I was so determined to take it home with me that day that I carried the giant box home in the pouring rain with the help of an amazing Italian lady gaffer I met at the party! It’s pretty crazy that something Miller created more than 50 years ago is still useful in the field.”

Jackson has worked professionally in the industry for the past five years as a second assistant camera and camera operator on documentaries. She is currently acting as assistant camera on an A&E documentary, which is shooting across America.
