Motion control filming is a versatile and advanced technique that empowers to achieve precise and complex camera movements for various purposes, including visual effects integration, time-lapse effects, and more. It requires specialized equipment, software programming, and coordination with other departments to achieve the desired results. Working closely with the camera team, I tend to design the moves in pre- and techvis so they can be loaded onto the rig before the shoot.
I used drones for the title sequence of the TV series “Goldrush” I directed. Pre- and tech-viz is essential here, find a making of on my “From script to screen” reel.
For some characters animatronics in a combination with cg can be the perfect solution.
Check out the footage from the music video “The Corrs – Long night” and the animatronic polar bear and moose on my “From script to screen reel”.
