Stair-climbers James, Jo and Pete risk their lives by trying to reach the third floor. It's a story of guts and sacrifice; a story of
genuine heroes who don't know the meaning of the word 'lift' - or do they? Thanks to the brilliant Michael Wright who wrote and directed the whole bloomin' thing, and to Partizan London who kindly produced it.
Director Michael Wright lovingly recreated this famous story of a
harrowing climb to the 3rd floor of an office block. James is played by Rob Whitelock, Pete by Euan Wilson and the tragic character of Jo is played by Amy Whitehouse. The hugely atmospheric music was written by Michael Mertens and the video was produced and post-produced by Partizan London. Thankfully, no cast or crew were injured during the
making of this hazardous video.

Expert snowboarder Euan Southcott used the Manfrotto Fig Rig to help film footage for a project called ‘Freezing Level’ about global warming told through the eyes of winter sports enthusiasts. Euan filmed in four different countries in some pretty difficult to reach locations which meant quite often his team was restricted to small cameras.
“We were looking at ways of keeping things stable but also the ability to get in close and still have fluidity,” says Euan.
“I was lucky enough to find the Manfrotto Fig Rig which enables us to get stability and a wider grip on a smaller camera.
“The other thing that was fantastic about the Fig Rig was that were filmed on anything from chairlifts, boats and cars and the ability to just grab shots from strange view points and to pick up vox pop style interviews in conditions and locations where normally it would be difficult was invaluable.
“Furthermore we used it with the LAN attachment (that comes with the Fig Rig) enabling us to snowboard with our gloves on and still control the zoom, focuses of the small camera when you are moving. This allowed us to get right in amongst the action of the snowboarders and really feel were part of the action we are watching!”
After years of using the Fig Rig on his award-winning films, Mike Figgis brought his idea to Manfrotto. An idea that is non-traditional in design, but purely simple and effective. The only modular system in the world to smoothly support the DV camera and act as a frame to mount all the accessories – including zoom controllers, mics, mixers, lights, monitors, arms. A circular frame with a crossbar to mount most mini DV cameras, the Fig Rig becomes part of the body to produce smooth, steady travelling shots.
