MOTORISED ACCURACY

MOTION CONTROL

IRON Films two robots Cinebot and Bigboy are equipped to handle your motion control requirements. Either a single robot or as a team. Our crew will work with you towards an effective and smooth shoot. From simple moves to complex choreographed motion, we can work with you to create the shots for your production demands.

Preparation

The more complex your shots become the more pre-production will be a crucial factor for success. Pre-programmed motions can save you both time and money. The shots can be tweaked, optimized, and shared without an expensive crew standing by onset.

On the other hand, if you do require an onset approach we can facilitate that as well.

Your place or ours?

When you come to our studio for a shoot the bot(s) will be ready at the start of the day. When you need us on location some requirements need to be fulfilled. In addition please note, that there will be transportation costs and time as well as setup time on location.

Motion Control Solutions

Iron Films Motion Control CineBot
The list below are just an example of the many possibilities. Contact us to discuss your plans.
Repeatability
The ability to accurately repeat a move is great for your jobs that require multi-pass shots. Either in multi-layer shots or for different versions of the same shot.
High-Speed Motion
Move at up to 4 meters per second. It gives you the possibility to follow falling subjects, make swift perspective changes or create a spectacular turn around an actor.
Programmable Focus
Determine the targets you want to have in focus and let the robot do its work for you. Perfect focus at any moment and at every speed.
Importing Movements
Pre-defined moves and animations can be imported from a range of file formats. The motion has to be in reach of the robot naturally.
Stop Motion
The robots are able to execute the programmed path set by step.
Model Mover
Animate an object attached to the robot.

Requirements

  • The stability of the robot depends on the surface on which it stands. The surface must be smooth and solid and must be able to withstand a point load of 400 kg p/m2.
  • The robot requires a 3 Phase 32 amp with an earth leakage circuit breaker of 300mA. Is this not available? Pass this on at least 5 working days in advance so that an electricity generator can be arranged.
