This website contains an overview about my work in the film business throughout Germany and is almost focusing on facts concerning my work with motion controlled cameras.
Robotic is not new, yet a sustainable and continually developing field of technology within the film industry. Presently we see a lot of game changing moves affected by future technologies. These changes happen rapidly and do have direct impact on how we use visual content in web or entertainment. Already we are seeing VR, Gaming and Film merging more and more, and this transformation is perhaps one of the most significant to occur in motion storytelling over the previous hundred years.
Motion control robotic in film is well known for some of the old-school looking tricks like multiplying a person or a crowd, changing foreground/ background and another element or something else. Today some of those are going to get achieved easily via software and with the help of crazily changing camera technology. There are extensive steps into virtual shooting to admire. So this could mean nobody will want or need to move a camera by robots anymore on a film set in the near future?
Actually it’s quite the opposite. I´m sure there are a whole lot of usages for cameras on robots in a creative and cost effective way – now more so than ever. However more time needs to be invested researching and building on our present knowledge, harnessing and leveraging these techniques effectively and making them future proof. Here on this website I will try to share some insight into what motion control is actually doing, and point to the tendencies I see where this technology can be applied and greatly benefit production. Ultimately, true professionals realize that really stunning, unbelievable VFX shots - the moments that captivate audiences in wonder - are achieved almost in a combination of real shot and C.G. imagery.
