Motion Control

In the film and Television industry, this has come to mean a field of filming where the camera movement is controlled by a computer so that the motion of the camera, in the studio or on location, can be repeated again and again, for the generation of special effects.

It is essentially a camera robot, but in the industry, these technical pieces of machinery are referred to using the more creative-sounding term "motion control rigs".

At Modern Studios, we have 2 cinebots: BOLT named Bert for high speed and a MILO for high accuracy named Tarz.

bert tarz

Used more than any other motion control rig in the world, the Milo's versatility, portability, and high accuracy makes it the ideal choice for live action shooting and macro tabletop work. With a resume of over 200 feature films and counting.

The Bolt High-Speed Cinebot is the fastest of its kind - capturing images in crisp focus that would be impossible by hand or any other method. The Bolt adds an entirely new perspective to filming - whether shooting commercials, tabletop work, film or television.
