KEY FEATURES

CGI INTERFACE

CGI INTERFACE

Producing complex camera movements for the Milo rig to perform and ensuring full integration with industry standard 3D and CGI packages is made simple with our Flair Motion Control software. Flair allows you to pre-visualise your camera movements and transfer them to the Milo to execute on set or export the exact motion made by the rig for use in post-production.

PORTABLE & READY TO SHOOT

PORTABLE & READY TO SHOOT

Increase ‘on location’ shooting time with the easy-to-assemble Milo motion control rig. The rig can normally be set up and operated by one person in under an hour from arriving on set. (unless being assembled from flight cases in which case 3 people can have it ready to shoot within the same time). Used daily in locations across the world, the Milo can be either transported whole or broken down into seven main sections (excluding rails) for increased transport options. Integrated floor wheels make the Milo very easy to move around a location or studio space. This portability and ease of use make the Milo a go-to choice for creative visionaries.

Track Options

PRECISION BEARING RAIL

PRECISION BEARING RAIL

Designed to not bend or twist during any motion or acceleration / deceleration, the Precision Bearing Rail is the best track to use with the Milo. It’s inherent rigidity and straightness provides the ultimate stable platform for the Milo, allowing for high-accuracy at speed, even over uneven ground.

Available in 1.2, 1.8 & 3 metre sections.

LIGHTWEIGHT BEARING RAIL

LIGHTWEIGHT BEARING RAIL

Delivering higher levels of performance than industry standard dolly rails, the Lightweight Bearing Rail is lighter and more portable than the Precision Bearing rail and can be taken apart if necessary for easy transportation.

Available in 1.6, 1.8 and 3 metre sections.
