The EyeDirect and VoxBox Pro are revolutionary and deceptively simple methods to hold your subject’s attention.
Rent the EyeDirect or VoxBox Pro in San Francisco as a substitute for the Interrotron or traditional off-camera interviews.
No monitor, electricity, or cables are required, so it’s perfect to rent for field shoots. The director just stands or sits next to the camera and connects with the subject in a natural conversation through the EyeDirect or VoxBox Pro. Gestures and body language are easily seen, too.
And it’s not just for the director: the subject’s parent, handler, or wrangler can also supply natural eye contact and improve the shot tremendously.
EyeDirect Mark II
The EyeDirect Mark II has been improved a lot since 2000. Past versions included the original EyeLiner, the EyeDirect Mini, and the folding Mark E. We offer the EyeDirect 16×9, aka the EyeDirect Mark II, which has a second mirror that pivots vertically, and allows for different heights of the camera and interviewer.
The newer VoxBox Pro allows for the interviewer to sit 90 degrees to the talent as well. Plus there’s the option for the camera operator to interview, too. It can be self supported on a light stand or use 15mm rods to attach to your camera.
Both systems allow for an iPad to be used for Facetime or Zoom interviews. Both come with lens donuts to match a variety of lens diameters.
We’re based near San Francisco and often support crews flying in from SFO. We also support camera crews from San Jose, and Sacramento that need these cool systems. Feel free to come by our storage facility in South San Francisco and pick it up before your trip or camera prep.
