It’s still not Black Friday 2021 but still, our inbox is flooded with early deals… so I’d like to highlight some of these deals that are relevant to the filmmaking community. This time around we’re covering deals from Edelkrone, FilmConvert as well as a few select deals from our partners B&H and CVP. Edelkrone is known for providing solid tools for demanding indie filmmakers. Their range of (motorized) sliders, motion control heads, jibs, mini-dollies, and all sorts of accessories is pretty impressive, and so are their early Black Friday deals! Once you have everything ready for post-production, FilmConvert’s plug-ins can be very useful for getting the look you want without fiddling around too much. And as usual, you’ll find some good deals from B&H and CVP further down in this article. Let’s go! Black Friday Deals 2021 – Edelkrone Edelkrone makes it very easy for me to write this article: they simply offer a 30% discount on everything they have in store. That’s a good deal, I’d say. To highlight a few of their offers, I’ve put together the following list, but make sure to search for any specific item you might need. image credit: Edelkrone JibONE Motion Control Jib (B&H link): $1,299 $909.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link SliderPLUS v5 PRO Long (B&H link): $899 $629.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link SliderPLUS v5 Compact (B&H link): $499 $349.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link Slide Module v3 for SliderPlus (B&H link): $549 $384.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link HeadPLUS PRO v2 Pan and Tilt Head (B&H link): $2,299 $1,609.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link FlexTILT Head v3 (B&H link): $99 $69.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link SliderONE v2 (B&H link): $499 $349.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link HeadONE (B&H link): $399 $279.30 (savings: 30%) – CVP link FilmConvert / CineMatch Deals 2021 FilmConvert is a highly acclaimed film emulation plugin (article here) for most popular NLEs like Adobe Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, or Final Cut Pro. Its latest addition called CineMatch (article here) is no less intriguing as it simplifies the process of mixing and matching different camera makes and models within one visually consistent timeline. image credit: FilmConvert For Black Friday 2021, you can get each plugin with a stunning 40% discount.
