Polecam Launches Graduate Trainee Scheme


Polecam Systems has initiated a Graduate Trainee Scheme at their Kempston, UK base. 22 year old Greg Carlisle has joined Polecam Systems as their first recruit under the new scheme.

Greg, a graduate from University College Birmingham with a BA Honours Degree said "I am extremely proud to be the first graduate under this new scheme and to be working with the Polecam sales team. I look forward to my further development within the company. I've already had the opportunity to see Polecam in action by visiting various events where I've assisted the operators in a live situation."

Since the arrival of additional Directors in October 2012, Graeme Chapman as managing director and Jonathan Lewis as financial director, the company has undergone major changes as it restructures its operations in order to meet new global opportunities.


Chapman said "The Graduate Scheme shows our commitment to new young ideas. The market place is changing and we need to change with it. The new ideas and thinking Greg brings will be harnessed into our sales processes in the future."

One of the major changes already implemented by Chapman is the appointment of Tecads Inc in the US as their major distribution partner for North, Central and South America.


Tecads bring an existing network of 60 dealers across the continents and a wealth of experience in the broadcast industry.

Polecam’s attraction has always been a winning combination of portability, speed of rig/derig, adding production values without hassle, getting crane shots where no other crane could go, and getting right in to where the action is. Crane shots up a mountain! No problem. On a small boat! No problem.


Polecam’s inventor, Steffan Hewitt, has continued to develop and refine Polecam, never standing still, and today Polecam Systems offers a wide choice of ways to own a rig, from the Polecam Starter Pack, an entry level configuration that with the Long Head will take a DSLR, Canon C300, Sony Nex 700, Black Magic Design Cinema camera or similar. The full Polecam rig when configured as 7th Heaven has an extended reach of 8m/26 feet and when fitted with a small profile HD camera can get you right in to where the action is, giving a unique creative viewpoint to your productions.

There’s a whole range available of mini HD cameras, other specialised cameras, heads, accessories, recorders, not to mention 3D, underwater add-ons and Extreme SloMo too, all of which comes with experienced advice from the Polecam Systems team.

Polecam will change the way you shoot and the way you think about shooting.
