Longmire – Behind the Scenes – Filmed with the Cheetah Dolly


Longmire – Behind the Scenes

A very fast track move used to freeze action for Longmire. The high-speed Cheetah motion control dolly has a top speed of 20 Feet Per Second, while remaining completely precise and repeatable. The scene was filmed with a Phantom high-speed camera in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Cheetah high-speed track drive can also be used on our Graphlite, Gazelle, and Impala motion control cranes.

Dracula Untold – Behind the Scenes

The Graphlite motion control crane was used to shoot high-speed and visual effects shots. The long arm of the Graphlite allowed large circular shots to be filmed without using circular track. The portability of the Graphlite allowed these scenes to be filmed in Georgia.

Jordan Flight Plate Innovation Film featuring King Bach – Filmed with the Technodolly


Jordan Flight Plate Innovation Film featuring King Bach
Technodolly Operator: Paul Maples
Technodolly Tech: Garritt Hampton
Director: Seth Epstein

In the words of the director, “shot over a long day, King Bach played 10+ characters (not all of em made it ). Shot on Red and using motion control we created a single camera move where he comes into scene as different characters”.

For this shot, which appears as an approximately 250′ continous track move, we set up 60′ of track on a green cyclorama stage in Hollywood. We programmed a very simple, 2 keyframe camera move, tracking straight back with the arm offset away from the track. The whole track move was approximately 50′ long and had to be a consistent speed. Using the maximum cartesian speed function on the Technodolly, we set a top track speed of about 1 Meter per second, then repeated the move many times as King Bach played numerous different characters (Twinning Shot). The same move was used to film additional actors (athletes), some of whom appear in the final commercial and some who don’t. The Technodolly worked continuously for around 17 hours without any problems and the quiet operation of the Technodolly allowed all of the dialog to be recorded live.

McDonalds “Jalapeño Double” Ad, 15 Second

Filmed with the Graphlite Motion Control Crane, these ads are an excellent example of a “twinning shot”. In what appears to be a single shot, the same actor plays multiple roles. The Precise, frame-accurate repeatability of the Graphlite allows multiple takes, including background plates and multiple performance passes, to be composited into one seamless shot.
