NBC “Believe” Promo – Filmed with the Cheetah Dolly

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”.

Hankook Tires “Brakes” Commercial, Behind the Scenes

For this commercial, the Gazelle was outfitted with the Cheetah high-speed track drive for very fast track speeds. Multiple passes were filmed , so the braking car could appear to stop within inches of the cars in front of it. Perfect repeatability at very high speeds were required to acheive the effect.
