This is a behind the scenes time-lapse of the Kessler Motion Control System comprised of the 3′ Cineslider, Oracle Controllers, Camera Control Module and Turntable for a sliding shot with pan.
In doing so, there are some formulaic traps that the movie does fall into.
2 Anton/Bauer Dionic 90 batteries mounted on their QR-Hotswap-GM power all, and allow for continuous power – which I won’t need for this shot, but really comes in handy for longer shots.
In this setup they give me some needed counterbalance and also ensure I don’t have to power down to swap a battery, which I like to avoid to keep things flowing when there is so much going on.
Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship.
If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.
