BRITDOC Impact Award Spot
BRITDOC Impact Award Spot – Behind the Scenes
This ad for the BRITDOC Impact Award was shot with a multi-stage motion control slider (linear mover) and the Talon pan/tilt head from Pacific Motion Control. The head was used as a repeat head and controlled by the Talon controller. The slider was controlled by our stepper speed controller. While this wasn’t truly a motion control shot, in that the head and slider were not controlled by the same system and would not have repeated together, the shot only called for precise movement and this was a low cost and simple option. The DP for the shot, Dallas Sterling, is a fantastic DP who is very familiar with our equipment and just needed a simple system for this shot. We were happy to help. A Canon DSLR was used for the shot, and the zoom was accomplished in post.
Motion Control Vertical Riser
Among our extensive line of motion control rigs and accessories, Pacific Motion Control offers a three-stage vertical riser. Offering precise repeatability and almost 7′ of vertical travel, this motion control vertical riser provides a great solution for precisely lifting cameras, models, and miniatures. It can be operated completely live, or can be programmed for frame accurate repeatability. Kuper motion control software allows the vertical riser to be used in conjunction with our other motion control moves, for complex coordinated motion.
For added flexibility, one or two stages can be removed, providing shorter travel, with added stability and weight handling. It can also be operated horizontally or on an angle.
