(Woodinville, Washington--September 12, 2014) Freefly Systems, known for professional next-generation camera stabilization, announces it has upgraded its manufacturing facility, added to its team and reduced prices on its MōVI stabilizers. Due to the industry’s enthusiastic adoption of the groundbreaking MōVI systems and accessories, the company has moved to new headquarters in Woodinville, Washington with a larger, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. To incorporate future technological advances, the company has added specialists in R&D and manufacturing, along with Patrick Williams as its new CFO/COO. To better interface with dealers and grow the brand, Steve Westover helms marketing as the new Director of Marketing, and Daniel Roe is the new Director of Sales and Business Development.
“Since the introduction of the MōVI, we have focused on satisfying the overwhelming demand for the MoVI,” says Tabb Firchau, President of Freefly Systems. “With the recent growth of our business and the manufacturing economies of scale that come with higher volume, we are now able to offer the technological innovations of the MōVI stabilizers at exciting new price levels. We hope this allows filmmakers of every scale to perform the creative camera moves that can only be accomplished with a MōVI.”
The MōVI M5, for cameras weighing up to 5-pounds/2.27 kg, is now priced at $3,995 and the MōVI M10, for loads up to 12-pounds/5.5 kg, has an MSRP of $7,995.
