Hey all, I can't for the life of me remember the name of the bracket (and who makes it) that pops into the slot on the front of a panavision where the follow focus goes, allowing you to slide on a Preston motor.

Can someone jog my memory as to who makes this bracket and what it's called? And if you have a contact number for the maker, that would be a bonus.

Thanks

I just worked with one last week. It was a Panavision bracket, with Panavision engraved on it. Maybe you can ask them were they get them done.....


I also understand that sombody else makes one too, I just don't know who that is.

Good luck,

mm.

Thanks guys.
Yeah I one I was using was from Panavision too and thought they said they had them made from Jerry Hill. But I didn't see them on his website so I wasn't sure.
Thanks again Erwin.
