Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) and The Visual Effects Company (VFX) are merging their Motion Control rental operations to become the world’s largest, one-stop MOCO shop.
The new look MRMC/VFX plans to offer a far greater selection of motion control rigs, from standard MOCO fronted by brand new, academy award winning Milos through to integrated model movers, turntables and moving platforms. No company has a broader range and more product available, complemented by some of the most skilled MOCO operators in the world. In addition, the company is able to offer creative and technical Previsualisation in 3D so that, for clients for whom it is appropriate, the entire series of shoots can be pre-planned, pre-seen, edited and tweaked all prior to making the first camera shot.
Malcolm Wooldridge, Principal of VFX, says:
“VFX has been a customer of Mark Roberts for 15 years. It makes total sense for us to combine our offerings to make Motion Control the “go to” choice in visual effects. Working together will enhance our techniques and skills to deliver an even better all-round service to our customers.”
Assaff Rawner, CEO of MRMC followed on with:
“We are very excited about this merger. MRMC won an Academy Award with the Milo for “changing the way Hollywood works”. With the skills of VFX and MRMC’s ever improving equipment, we are looking forward to changing the way visual effects work in 2018 and beyond and extending these out to other industries as well.”
Billy Ziller, MRMC’s Manager of Rental Operations, said:
“We are excited to begin this new chapter because we are relentlessly focused on the same goal – to deliver the best robotics solutions for our customers.”
The Visual Effects Company is a team of dedicated professionals, utilizing the most up to date Motion Control equipment and camera robotic systems as well as AR/VR real-time camera tracking equipment. The Company also provides a technical previsualization (pre-viz) service for all our Motion Control and High Speed Robots. It prides itself in offering an innovative approach to solving our clients project needs as well as a production service for those clients who require a convenient in-house solution.
