Hauppauge, New York—The Tiffen Company supported the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Scientific and Technical Awards in conjunction with the Oscars. Tiffen’s Steadicam Smoothee was given as the exclusive gift for the awards ceremony attendees.
Leveraging the same technology as the $60,000 Hollywood rig systems, Smoothee is designed to let users shoot crisp, smooth footage from their iPhone or GoPro camera. Tiffen provided 450 Smoothee bonus packs containing the Steadicam Smoothee with mounts for the iPhone 4/4S and GoPro Hero/Hero2/Hero3.
“We are very honored to be able to contribute to the Academy’s celebration of the Sci-Tech awards, where industry visionaries come together to celebrate outstanding technological achievements,” said Steve Tiffen, president and CEO. “Helping to create the world’s greatest images is at the heart of everything the Tiffen Company does, and with Tiffen being a past recipient of Academy recognition, having the Smoothee represented at the Scientific and Technical Awards is something the entire Tiffen family is very proud of.”
The awards ceremony was held February 9, 2013 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Portions of the awards presentation will be featured during the Oscar telecast on February 24, held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center and hosted by Seth MacFarlane. tiffen.com
