Reel Factory has just landed the first and only high-speed cine robot, for the New Zealand film industry.
The Bolt High-Speed Camera Robot is the fastest of its kind – capturing images in crisp focus that would be impossible by hand or any other method. If its high speed, precision and repeatable moves you need then explore our Bolt Robot. The bolt adds an entirely new perspective to filming – whether shooting commercials, table top work, film or television. These machines are not to be messed with, within a fraction of a second it will move from a standstill to full high-speed motion and back to a complete stop. Capable of horizontal and vertical movement speeds of up to 4 meters per second, and a 180-degrees of rotation in a 1 second, the Bolt can keep up with almost anything.
The system is portable and designed to be set-up and ready for shooting in under an hour. Every camera move is under complete control, precisely repeatable at any speed. We have full control of zoom, focus and iris through any move.
Cinebots have been around for a while, but have always been hard to use. With technology advancements over the past half a decade, the new Bolt is by far the most advanced. We can now create custom moves in minutes, compared to hours.
Our system is the pedestal only kit, tracks will be an integration further afield. The robot is not only great for all types of film applications but also events, PR activations, red carpet events and much more. If you have a project you think the Bolt may be able to play a part in don’t hesitate to get in contact. We have more details that can be sent around tech specs and pricing.
