Quick one for you, but a rather unique one.
The Pacific Motion Control Cyclone rig… It sounds like the Tardis taking off!!
The Cyclone is a one-of-a-kind motion control rig. It allows for continuous rotations around a stationary central point. The Cyclone can be used either on the ground, with a fixed platform in the center, or hung from above, allowing unobstructed views below. The Cyclone is normally outfitted with our Talon Pan/Tilt Head, which can be operated live, as a remote head, or used as a repeat head. Additionally, the Cyclone and Head can be programmed and operated from Kuper motion control software for perfect repeatability, precision, and extreme control over your shots. The Cyclone’s camera pedestal height can be easily adjusted to allow for a wide range of camera angles, or to accommodate actors of different heights.
