By now you’ll all have heard the terribly sad news of Flyka’s founder - Tony Holker - passing away earlier this year. But whilst he may no longer be with us in person, his passions and his legacy will live on. That’s a promise. With the support and blessings of Tony’s family, Flyka is now owned by myself - Jayne Leponis - and will form a new part of my Moving Image Film Company. Flyka will continue to operate, to honour Tony’s memory and to continue the hard work, passion and dedication he poured into the business. We share Tony’s ideals, and we are looking forward to building on the legacy he has already left. With your help, we’ll be continuing Flyka’s mission and ensuring Tony’s achievements are never forgotten. Flyka is back up and running, and open for business. You can find all our contact details below, and please, if there’s anything you’d like to share about your experiences working with Tony, we’d love to hear it. With fondest wishes, Jayne Leponis.
The Flyka dolly is unlike almost anything else on the market. It’s unique design has been ergonomically built around the camera position options & the camera operator, as well as other crew members needed on-board, such as follow-focus, sound & DoP to approve takes on the fly & saving huge amounts of time with playback.
The super-smooth electric motors ensure a safe & smooth ride that is kind to camera rigs, without the jolt of engine equivalents. There are also no fumes or noise to contend with for talent or athletes & no vehicle juddering.
This vehicle is also designed to fit into places that other vehicles are either not allowed, or will not fit. We get permission in public parks, up pavements, between lampposts, down alleyways, along corridors, as well as on public roads in controlled settings, as we can fit through security bollards very easily.
There is no rest time required for the camera crew & the time footprint is small, even with camera reposition & rig changes.
This vehicle works best with stabilizing equipment, just like any other tracking vehicle: Steadicam, MK-V, Movi, vertical isolators, but also used with Easy Rigs & hand-held.
This is not here to replace other tracking vehicles, such as quads, rickshaws or Segways, but simply another filming tool, with some nifty ergonomics added that is totally designed around the camera position & crew, along with step on/off options for one-take shots.
This is a totally modular design that will be rigged to your own spec, along with my product knowledge to create a quick & easy solution where nobody gets tired & cameras can be moved on & off the dolly quickly & efficiently.
