Excellence in Motion
First-Class Equipment to Help You Get the Perfect Shot
Welcome to Pacific Motion Control. Our innovative line of gear is manufactured by Mike Sorensen and Al Miller, and by Technocrane. Sorensen and Miller are two of the most important developers of motion control technology and share a Technical Achievement Oscar for their design of the live-action motion control Zebra dolly.
Our rental inventory also includes the Graphlite, Gazelle, Cheetah High-Speed Dolly, Bogey Dollies, 5 motion control camera heads, the Talon and Aerohead repeatable camera heads, and the state-of-the-art Technodolly programmable telescopic camera crane. All of our equipment has been designed with portability, reliability, and versatility in mind. Owner Craig Shumard has over a decade of set and manufacturing experience.
In addition to a staff of veteran Kuper Motion Control and Technodolly operators, we have the ability to make almost any shot possible. With the help of Bill Tondreau at Kuper Controls, a number of visual effects supervisors, and several digital post-production houses, we continue to be at the forefront in our field.
Pacific Motion Control is able to assist its clients in all phases of production - from pre-production, meetings, scouts, to the transportation of the equipment. Since the industry is now a worldwide business, we have adjusted our billing for travel days of the gear to offset your overall cost. Our continued goal is to support production in all aspects while adding to the overall quality and efficiency of your production needs.
