When Miller Camera Support Equipment, a leader in the production of innovating camera support solutions, was presented with the opportunity to join esteemed British filmmaker Philip Bloom’s annual Movember movement, the men jumped to support the cause, and are inviting fellow moustache fanatics to do the same. Participants who donate a small fee, and try to grow a moustache with all their might, will be entered for a chance to win either a Miller LP ’54 Classic Tripod or a Miller Air Alloy System. All proceeds will go directly to organizations that fund research for men’s prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues.
