Who we are
Ian Speed | The Big Cheese
Ian is the Big Cheese at Camera Revolution, usually found in his big chair stroking a white cat. Started tech’ing back in Libra II days and somehow still going.
Most memorable job was “World is not Enough” High speed boat chase up the Thames. Can still be found on set from time to time.
Rebecca | The Anchor
Rebecca is the Anchor of Cam Rev. If you need to know whats going on its usually best to speak to her.
Bookings, accounts, trivia questions, she knows everything, and is probably psychic.
Douglas | Operations manager
Doug is the main man for answering stuff. Any bookings and office type stuff he is da man.
DaveT | In-House Tech
Dave is the Cam Rev ‘in-house tech’. Not often in the office, mostly found on set with allen keys in one hand and some kind of food or beverage in the other.
Loves his job so much he is even open to wearing cameras, as the picture shows.
Kandi | Security
Kandi is the highly trained coiled spring of the Camera Revolution Security Dept. On entering the building you are highly likely to be searched for treats or tennis balls which will be confiscated by her if found.
Rob Portus | Mr Fixit
Rob is Mr. Fixit. Like a modern day ‘Macgyver’ Rob is usually found with some piece of kit in pieces and manages to put them back where he found them.
Also found on set as a tech and loves working in mud.
Dave Hideg | In house Tech
Dave is now out on the Allen keys after years of fixing heads and cables. He still makes a great cuppa though.
Sean | In House tech
Sean has made the grade and now out as a tech. He knows his stuff and revels in doing it.
Michele | In house tech
Michele comes to us from years of other heads and arms. He will be on your set smiling and tuning Libra heads from now on.
Barnaby | Maintenance
Every bit of kit that comes back broken ends up on Barnaby’s desk. He also spends days making cables and brackets to mount everything from a Preston to our new sink.
Joe Buxton | Joe Libra
‘Joe Libra’ is world renown Libra tech.
The only person I know to calm some of the worlds liveliest DoP’s.
The scale of his knowledge and ability is only dwarfed by the scale of his hairpiece collection.
Mario Spanna | Mazza
Mazza started in the video dept back in the 90’s but quickly realised the fun he was missing out on so became a Libra tech.
He is still having oodles of fun with heads and has a few stories from the years to entertain you.
Darren was the Libra tech in South Africa for many years, and then China for a few years too.
Has now come home to play with heads and brings a vast knowledge with it.
He still loves a job away as he misses the Airmiles.
Gareth bounces between Cape Town and London as a Libra tech.
He seems to time it so he does commercial season in SA through the UK winter and then comes to the UK for our summer of features.
Not a bad life.
Neil Tomlin | AKA Munkeh
…enough said, you know him already!
