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.

Old Navy Presents: The New T Machine – Filmed with the Technodolly


Old Navy Presents: The New T Machine
Filmed with the Technodolly
Technodolly Operator: Anthony Jacques
Technodolly Tech: Adam Francis

This was one of our first jobs with the Technodolly. It was shot over the course of 2 days, at an ENORMOUS stage in Downey, California (Downey Studios – the former North American Rockwell Plant, where the space shuttle was built). In the Commercial, Mr. T plays multiple versions of himself around his Old Navy “T Machine”. The commercial was shot on an Arri Alexa and involved several setups around the “T Machine”, in which Mr. T would play multiple characters in each shot (Twinning Shot). In one extremely complicated shot, Mr. T gives himself a high five. This was accomplished by shooting multiple takes of Mr. T giving a tennis ball on a c-stand a high five, from both sides. Mr. T was really fun to work with, and took the time to shake everyone’s hand and introduce himself to everyone on set – a huge crew. He was friendly and funny throughout the very long shoot.
