Here’s what some of our former participants had to say about their Movi-Hire training experience.

“My MOVI training at Movi-Hire was absolutely invaluable! This is not a piece of kit you can really expect to just pick up and shoot with. Scott was able to fast-track me through the setup process, pulling on his vast experience and teaching me the dos and don’ts of this quirky contraption. In the field (Australia) I was able to confidently set the MOVI up with a Red Epic and prime, and the results were amazing. Do Not miss the opportunity to get trained properly!”

Paul Williams - Director of Photography (David Attenborough’s Conquest of the skies)

“These guys were one of the first in the UK to use the Movi and it shows. Their knowledge is exceptional and their training quickly gave me the confidence I needed to operate what has now become a crucial piece of kit.”

Kelvin DeSena – Video Department – National Lottery

“Having a day’s training on the MOVI rig was invaluable. It gave me a very  good understanding of how it works and how best to set the control parameters for any particular shot. Because of this, I could go into the shoot much more confident that I’d be able to use the MOVI to its full potential than if I’d just been given a brief introduction to it while picking up the kit. Apart from being a friendly and very easy going guy to spend a day with,  Scott was the perfect trainer – methodical, patient and thorough. We also very much appreciated his calm and collected technical support on the shoot day.”

Nigel Kinnings – Director Of Photographer
