BRITDOC Impact Award Spot – Time-Lapse


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.


Kevin Bacon EE “Two For One Tickets” Commercial – Filmed with the Zebra


Kevin Bacon EE “Two For One Tickets” Commercial

Kevin Bacon stars as Kevin Bacon and Kevin Bacon and Kevin Bacon and Kevin Bacon and Kevin Bacon in this fantastic commercial for EE. Filmed with the Zebra motion control camera dolly with the Talon repeat head, and three Aerohead repeat heads, this commercial allows Kevin Bacon to reprise his roles from Apollo 13, Animal House, Friday the 13th, Footloose, A Few Good Men, and Hollow Man, with references in dialog to Tremors and Flatliners as well.

This commercial was shot on 6 Panavision Millennium 35mm Film Cameras, with 3 Aeroheads, a Talonon the Zebra, and additional cameras on Sticks. After everything was shot, motion control move data was exported from Kuper (for the zebra), and from the Aeroheads and given to production for use in post.
