From Pacific Motion Control…
Shot on location at a school in LA, and at the LA zoo. All of the shots at the school were done with the Impala and all of the zoo shots were with the Bogey dolly. The commercial was shot on an Arri Alexa.
The hero motion control passes were all recorded live using encoders. The dolly and arm were operated using our t-bar encoder, which allows motorcycle throttle style control over dolly speed and boom. The head was operated live with our wheels encoders, and focus was controlled with our Preston FiZ motion control interface, allowing the use of the industry standard Preston FiZ II hand unit and motors.
The School and Zoo shots were all completed in a single day, while fighting changing weather and waning sun.
Most of the school shots were done in a light rain, with the Impala covered by a few trash bags. All of our gear is completely portable and suitable for any location. We have shot in the most extreme conditions, including snow and extreme cold, rain, desert windstorms and extreme head, and rising tides on the beach.
