Screen Plane

SCREEN PLANE is a company developing equipment for 3D image acquisition as well as a service provider for shooting 3D content. We initially started out creating stereoscopic gear for our own projects, but it appeared to us, that some of our ideas might be useful to others in the industry.

The company was founded in 2009 by director/dop Sebastian Cramer, whose technical background includes the invention of the Academy®- and Emmy® Award winning Skater Dolly and it‘s family of products (Watch the online Skater trailer in Quicktime .mov format).

Cramers partner in the developments team of SCREEN PLANE is Jan Bernotat, whose background include the engineering and operation of motion control rigs as well as the production side of feature films and commercials. Visit Screen Plane for more info.
