RussiAn Arm / CAmerA ChAse Vehicle

New in 2024,  Russ De Jong's Russian Arm has now been equipped  on the new Ford Lightning Electric Vehicle.


North Film Co. has an amazing cinema tool at it's disposal, the North Film Co. Camera Chase Vehicle! Capable of capturing breathtaking video footage from a moving vehicle, the Russian Arm is a tried and tested cinematic tool!  Equipped with a 15ft boom, Russ is able to bring surreal vehicle chase camera work to life. At the heart of the camera chase vehicle is the new 3 axis stabilized remote head system by Arri, the SRH-360. This remote head brings fantastic image stabilization and maneuverability, making it a game changer on the Russian Arm and off!


Extensive monitoring and equipment upgrades have been made to facilitate the most efficient and effective system for capturing motion shots. With 3 large 17" monitors and 4 additional smaller monitors used by the tech crew for monitoring the safety of arm/camera, Russ has tailor-designed a slick, clean, and robust system.
