This BTS Video Shows off the Cinematic Acrobatics of the BOLT High-Speed Cinebot
Some days you just need an extra dose of awesome in your life to give you the boost you need.
Today's awesome boost comes in the form of a BTS video and reel showing off the tremendous creative potential of a new piece of gear, the Mark Roberts Motion Control (aka MrMoco) BOLT High-Speed Cinebot, a robotic motion-control arm, much like that of Bot & Dolly, that can breeze through complex camera moves in just fractions of a second. When paired with a slow motion camera such as the Phantom Flex 4K, which can shoot 1,000 fps at full 4K resolution, the BOLT transforms into one of the most jaw-dropping creative image capture tools known to humankind. Don't believe me? Have a look for yourself.
Here's the finished BOLT demo reel that shows off longer form versions of the shots captured above. Quick warning, there's a brief, but artful NSFW moment near 1:10 in the video.
And just in case you wanted to see the BOLT in action one more time, here it is zooming around on some dolly track like it has a mind of its own. I, for one, welcome our new robotic overlords.
If your day is not significantly more awesome after checking out those videos, then I apologize, but there's nothing more I can do for you.
