NBC “Believe” Promo 2 “Feel It” – Behind the Scenes

This promo is called “Feel It” and was filmed with the Cheetah high-speed motion control Dolly from Pacific Motion Control. The Cheetah dolly was used to film multiple passes, including background plates, special effects (cars falling), and actor passes. In a shot like this, many times actors are filmed separately from special effects for safety. These multiple passes are then combined in post for a seamless effect. In order to ensure that all passes match, Kuper motion control software provides camera sync, via a shutter pulse from film or professional digital cameras (Red Epic, Arri Alexa), or through video sync (Genlock) by using a converter. Kuper can also be slaved to timecode to allow for synced audio. The spot was filmed at Disney’s Golden Oak Ranch on a Phantom high-speed camera.

Promo for NBC’s new J.J. Abrams show, “Believe”, features Kelly Sweet’s cover of Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight”.

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.

Jamie Sadlowski Long Drive Champion – Golf Digest

This video was shot for a feature in the Golf Digest iPad app, by Dom Furore, at a Southern California area golf course. It was shot using the Gazelle Motion Control Crane, Cheetah high-speed track drive and our large motion control turntable. A Phantom HD high-speed camera and GoPro Hero 2 were used to capture the stunning high-speed footage. The GoPro was later destroyed while capturing the devastating swing of Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski – head on.

Stills from the shoot were also featured in a Golf Digest article on Jamie Sadlowski’s swing.

Nike LeBron X+ Commercial “Shoe Science” – Filmed with the Cheetah high-speed dolly


Nike LeBron X+ Commercial “Shoe Science”
Produced by Juliet Zulu
For a unique perspective, the Cheetah high-speed motion control dolly was used under a plexiglass deck to show how the LeBron X+ shoes react as LeBron James runs and moves. The Cheetah dolly’s 18 feet per second track speed allowed it to keep up with Mr. James without limitations, and the Cheetah’s low profile allowed it to easily move beneath the deck.
