Motion Control Day - Time Lapse

So, a number of months ago I was the Director of Photography on a motion control shoot for Squint / Opera, a company that do some really fantastic architectural visualisation work. We utilised the Talos rig from Mark Roberts Motion Control and the day went seamlessly. We even finished on time which, as some may know with motion control, can often be the real killer for budget. We shot green screen with the moves being generated in post and then applied to the rig. Some trimmings were required due to space, etc, but all seemed to work quite smoothly at the back end of post production.

We shot on the Red Epic, at full 5K, with a 2.40:1 mask. This is due to the 3D-generated architecture as the "vertically challenged" 2.40:1 suits the wide aspect of plazas, lobbies, etc.

The final video should be out soon but this is a little time lapse video of the day's shoot.
