NBC “Believe” Promo – Filmed with the Cheetah Dolly


NBC “Believe” Promo 2 “Feel It”


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”.

Jonas Brothers “Pizza Girl” Music Video- Pacific Motion Demo Reel


Jonas Brothers “Pizza Girl” Music Video, from the Disney Channel show “Jonas”

All of the “real pizza” footage in this music video was shot on the Pacific Motion Control stage, using the Zebra live-action motion control dolly, a Sorensen Design Pan/Tilt/Roll head, and a Phantom HD digital camera, shooting at multiple frame rates. The video is currently featured on the Jonas Brothers official YouTube Channel. The efficiency of the crew, and reliablity of the Zebra allowed this to be shot on the same stage, on the same night as this NBC/Orville Redenbacher spot.
