MYT Works is a designer, manufacturer and retailer of camera motion equipment. Our company was created as an endeavor of Turn of the Century Pictures, a Manhattan-based film production studio. Our founder’s experience as a filmmaker and his exasperation with existing camera tools led him to collaborate with a team of engineers to create better solutions; thus, MYT Works was Born out of Frustration.
Our team solves the unique technical dilemmas of camera professionals who seek excellence in camera operation. Our in-house design and manufacturing ensures that we have full quality control to deliver functionality and reliability in our camera motion tools.
Our location in New York City keeps us on the pulse of the industry on all fronts: broadcast, cinema production and independent filmmaking. All of our products are built and serviced at our Brooklyn location.
Our story begins with filmmaker Etienne Sauret, who has worked for over two decades in film, TV and broadcast production. Etienne became frustrated that existing camera movement tools failed to address a variety of challenges he faced every day. After searching for portable camera movement products that provide the right amount of damping, precision and durability while minimizing deflection, bounce-back and noise, Etienne took matters into his own hands to create better products.
MYT Works was established in 2010 through a collaboration of filmmakers and engineers to address common camera operator problems. We design not only to move the camera in a more stable and precise way, but also to minimize setup time, redos, safety risks and production quality issues that operators experience. In addition, our products are uniquely modular, multi-purpose tools that work across product lines for maximum adaptability.
