IBC visitors could win a limited edition Miller LP ’54 Classic Tripod today in a charitable raffle being held to mark the 60th anniversary of Miller Fluid Heads. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the IABM Educational Foundation, which supports broadcast students in furthering their technical education.
The raffle is open until 15:45 today (with tickets available at https://www.justgiving.com/iabmeducationalfoundation/). Any IBC attendees that enter the raffle can collect a free Miller 60th anniversary camera plate locking key ring at Miller’s stand. The winner of the classic hand-built wooden tripod will be announced at 4pm by IABM Foundation Chair, Alan Brill.
Just 40 of the tripods, which were first introduced in 1954, have been built this year from the remaining components left after the last production run of the Light Professional. They are crafted from Australian Blackwood.
“We are very appreciative to receive a donation that allows us to continue to support individuals worldwide who are interested in furthering their technical education to advance their careers in broadcast and media technology,” said Roger Crumpton, director and trustee of the IABM Educational Foundation.
“As a company that strives to continuously develop camera support solutions that help cameramen improve the way in which they capture imagery, Miller is committed to assisting the next generation of forward-thinking creators and fortifying the future of broadcasting through education. We are happy to raise money for the cause,” added Mike Lippmann, European manager, Miller Fluid Heads (Europe).
