Motion control cinematography is using motorised, computer controlled rigs to move the camera during shots.
Time and Motion Films’ main use of this technique is when shooting timelapses. By adding in very slow camera moves, over the duration of the timelapse, the end result is a timelapse where the camera appears to be moving in real time, whilst the action around is unfolding at speed.
The same equipment can also be used in real time filming, to create perfectly reproducible camera moves. It can even be used to composite real time and timelapse shots together for special effects shots.
