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”.

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.
