Anderson Takes Sachtler’s Ace L into the Wild for National Geographic

Shelton, Connecticut, December 3, 2013 --

Wildlife cinematographer Casey Anderson is constantly challenging himself and his equipment, to capture some of the most incredible animals that roam our planet. His camera arsenal is broad, from Sony FS-700s to FLIR infrared and other super low-light night cameras. “What isn’t ‘broad’ is my now-favorite choice of tripod – the Sachtler Ace L. It’s perfect for everything,” he says enthusiastically. Anderson recently took the Ace L on three different projects for National Geographic. “In two circumstances, I was filming giant bears scavenging on whale carcasses,” he explains. “One was along the coast of the Arctic Ocean. Hoards of polar bears and a few grizzly bears devoured a dead bowhead whale. “Another was in Kodiak Alaska,” he adds. “Here, up to 20 of the world’s biggest bears consumed a dead humpback whale. We had to slip in at night and get our shots. At any given time, we’d have to bolt away from an approaching bear. The Ace L is lightweight for easy getaways – but sturdy and steady for smooth, solid shots. It’s simply the perfect combination of low weight for run-and-gun coupled with an amazing design for filming. It’s now my favorite tripod ever.” An explorer and naturalist, Casey Anderson is based out of Montana. He is host and executive producer of the National Geographic WILD Channel series “Expedition Wild” and “America the Wild.” His project “Die Trying, the Hunt for the Super Bear” will air first quarter of 2014.
