If you are new to it, you may not know what 'motion control' means: in the film & video industry, it refers to the use of mechanisms controlled by computer technology. In a motion control studio, the film or video camera is mounted on a mechanism driven by motors controlled by a computer system. Such a mechanism is known as a 'motion control rig'. In addition, the computer system may control the zoom and focus of the camera lens, lighting circuit dimmers and extra mechanisms for moving props, known as 'modelmovers'.
At Pirate Motion Control there are 12 independent motors driving 12 separate movements, 3 lighting circuit dimmers and a wide variety of modelmovers, such as linear or rotary. We alo dry hire these modelmovers and our rotating stage.
