We bet you didn’t know that Freakshow HD is now international!
Across the pond (and then some), Angry Face is a client-focused company out of Munich, Germany, whose goal is to provide their customers with custom, high-quality manufactured components, and services—selling not only current and legacy Tangent panels, but manufacturing high-quality upgrades, and reselling color grading equipment as well. As of today, Angry Face is the first reseller of Freakshow HD equipment inside the EU.
A huge part of Angry Face’s customer base is digital imaging technicians (DITs) who love to customize and develop unique carts and workflows. Adding more gear to their product line was more than just a logical choice for Angry Face—it was a necessity.
When asked about their partnership with Freakshow HD, Mazze Aderhold, founder and chief engineer at Angry Face explained, “Freakshow HD provides equipment that is thoughtfully created, durable, and highly valued among on-set assistants like DITs. At Angry Face, we strive to supply the best hardware available for our customers—and Freakshow HD provides exactly that. They make the most solid 12G SDI splitters on the planet, and we just had to get in on that kind of quality.
“After decades in the industry, the operator/engineers at Freakshow eventually recognized the need to make their own hardware. There was nothing on the market that could fit the needs of their clients, so they decided to design, engineer, and manufacture the hardware on their own. Their need to live up to the expectations they had set for other manufacturers encouraged them to go above and beyond in crafting splitters that are rock solidly robust, and with the highest specs. They are truly the best of the best.”
DIT and QTake operator, Christian Dressler, based out of Frankfurt, Germany, added, “Freakshow HD 12G-SDI splitters are incredibly small and super robust. I can run them on my cart, or directly on the camera rig powered by a standard V-mount battery via the LEMO-power connector. What’s not to like about Freakshow splitters?”
This partnership has allowed Freakshow HD to expand into a new territory we never knew would be possible. Making our mark on the EU is just what we needed to validate that we are moving in the right direction. We can’t wait to see where we go from here!
