Motion Control Monthly Round Up

Welcome to the March Edition of the Monthly MRMC Motion Control Round-Up!

Every month we’ll be taking a look at some of the coolest & most awe-inspiring motion control that’s taking place across the globe using our award-winning camera robot robots and software as well as a look behind the scenes of some amazing shoots! This month’s edition features ice cream, a dog, a marching band and a beautifully choreographed fight scene proving the true versatility of what is possible with motion control!

Free Fire Stunt Action

We got to see the Bolt put through its paces with an excellent live-action stunt sequence shot by Free Fire in Bangkok. Using triggering and precision paths perfectly timed to capture the moves, there were some excellent well-choreographed fight sequences, that were brilliantly shot in slow motion. It’s fair to say the final footage really packed a punch and lead to some breathtaking footage that will have audiences dazzled.

Titan X Marches to the Beat

Robot Studios in Miami recently posted this awesome BTS of the Titan X motion control camera robot shooting “Problema” – a music video by the artist Daddy Yankee, which has been viewed over 31 million times on YouTube! The BTS shows the Titan X on track capturing some fantastic aerial footage sweeping across the band as they bang their drums to the beat.

Who let the dog out?

MrMoco Rentals had the recent pleasure of working for the renowned Churchill brand creating their new commercial. Shot in coney beach, Wales the video advertisement sees the famous bulldog sliding down a funfair slide. One of the key challenges to the brief was executing a camera movement that precisely follows the curvature of the slide at a constant distance of 2 centimetres from the surface. Using 3D Previz from Untold, the team prepped the shoot over a 2 week period.

Rite Media Whet the Appetite

The team over at Rite Media created some cool tabletop work of some delicious ice cream being tantalising covered in cookie crumbs for a great looking piece of food work. The Bolt Cinebot was on hand to capture some fantastic slow motion of the ice cream being rolled and sprinkled in tasty cookie crumbs. Is it summer already?
