DIY 3 Axis MoCo test footage
I spent the last 3 years building a motorized time-lapse dolly that runs on a track and a motorized time-lapse car to assist me as a DOP in shooting unique footage for Getty Images, lifestyle shows, commercials, features, tv shows and docs. Well you get the idea. Having a track based system enables me to repeat moves for special effects and gives the ability to go over harsh environments such as rocks, water, plants and uneven surfaces. The land based rig allows me the freedom to create time-lapse footage anywhere a flat hard surface is available. It can cruise at fast or slow speeds as the camera explores urban environments. Turns left, right with reverse. I have been utilizing some of Kessler Cranes gear such as motors, camera gimbals and controllers in my custom gear. I also use the Kessler Oracle and Revolution head for the camera movement. Their gear is friggin awesome!
Some of the footage is from my gig with the BC government during the 2010 Winter Olympics. I hope to post some of the behind the scenes Timelapse I shot when on assignment with Twilight- Breaking Dawn.
