THE BEGINNING/JULY 2011
LockCircle was created by Brain Emo, a small italian company, without any grand schemes
mostly for passion for quality production tools!
The project started designing the most “over-engineered” and “priced”
camera (Canon EF) body cap: the LockCircle!
Dante Cecchin co-founder was mostly envolved in the film industry like a director of photography
and commercial director with “passion” for aesthetics and design, and during
a tv-series shooting with multiple HDSLR cameras the “urgent need”
for a professional bayonet locking cap to protect the camera sensors from the elements
with a high-end approach was the “strike” that started the process!
The LockCircle camera body cap was immediatly an online sales success selling
all over the world and a few months later the innovative LockPort followed.
But Dante’s main passion was building custom rigs and tools and modifying lenses from the early 80’s!
In only 3 years many projects was launched in the market and sold all over the world and many are in the R&D process.
Brain Emo from the 2001 is the Zeiss (until 2012), Kino Flo, Matthews, Mole Richardson,
GAM, Tiffen, Century Precision, and later Redrock Micro distributor for the italian market,
but the globalized markets was changing the rules across the markets and the core-business moved slowly
to the LockCircle project opening the company to a more “intrigating” international game.
