Tech Geek Out

Just in case any of our blog followers are tech-heads, here are some juicy photos of our camera set-up.
We are using a Nikon D-90 connected to a Kuper motion control system which was built and re-rigged for us by Tim Taylor.

Here is a close-up of the camera plus all the gearings needed to control the zoom and focus.

And here is the camera ready to shoot approx 200 frames for an 8 second tracking shot through the front door of the cabin.

If the shot works when we shoot it on Thursday, we'll post the results here.

Clear skies!

motion control test today lighting too!

We acquainted ourselves with the motion control camera and tested some lighting tonight. the test came out really great. I had a lot of fun trying to keep the prototype flea from falling apart.

Here is the shot I took of our lighting setup.

Hopefully Jon will have the test up later.

Can't wait to get my hands on those new puppets. I'll be gentle Neil.
