Model Movers

When filming large objects in a simulated moving environment (like people inside a fast car) the flexing and physics involved just don’t look real unless you really move the set. This is where MRMC’s range of Model Movers comes in.

Large or Small

Whether filming large cars or smaller items like a clay figure for stop-motion animation or jewellery for automated product photography, it just makes sense to move the object instead of the camera. Mark Roberts Motion Control offers model movers in a range of sizes to suit your needs. From model cars to real cars, we can move it, rotate it, and shake it.

STEWART PLATFORM

STEWART PLATFORM

A high-strength motion-base platform with 6 Degrees of Freedom capable of moving large and small objects. The high-speed, powerful servo units give the user the ability to move their object in any linear and rotational direction to create the illusion of motion. These platforms are often used with actors against a green screen to give the appearance of driving a vehicle over rough terrain or piloting a spacecraft, for example.

MOTION BASE CONTROLLER

MOTION BASE CONTROLLER

The Motion Base Controller is a scale model of the Stewart Platform that provides an intuitive method of controlling or programming the full-size version. The full-size rig mimics the hand-controlled movements of the Motion Base Controller, and optical encoders ensure a high degree of accuracy and stability.

Large Rotating Turntable

Large Rotating Turntable

Capable of carrying large objects, such as motorbikes or cars, this 4.5-metre turntable is ideal for shooting automotive commercials, rotating whole sets or performing a perfect 360-degree move around an actor. It’s sturdy, but slim base also makes it useful for showroom demonstrations. It can support payloads of up to 600kg with rotation speeds up to 90 degrees per second

Rotational / Turntable

Rotational / Turntable

Turn your object with absolute precision with the Rotational / Turntable Model Mover. The unit is fitted with a lathe style chuck, with clamping jaws to hold the object in position, and a sensor for indexing the chuck — the unit used in conjunction with the Linear or 2 Axis Model Movers to deliver even more versatility and control.

Linear & Axis

Linear / Chuck Model Movers

Linear / Chuck Model Movers

Ideal for moving an object in a straight line quickly, the Liner Model Mover can push, pull, lift and lower objects at speeds of up to 1 metre per second. Combine the Linear Model Mover with the Rotate or Chuck Model Movers for total control in any direction. When the Chuck is added the possibilities of the combined units allow an object to be moved in a whole array of directions.

2 Axis Model Mover

2 Axis Model Mover

The 2 Axis Model Mover is a combination of the Chuck Model Mover and a larger rotate system.Whether the units are used together or apart, they bring precision and versatility to the film set. The larger rotate can be used upright using its stand, or placed on its back. The Chuck Model Mover then operates in a plane perpendicular to the larger system. The Chuck Model Mover has a hollow shaft to allow models to be mounted from either side.
