  • Kessler Multi-Axis Motion-control Time-lapse Tutorial – sandbox/Uli Formula

    Kessler Multi-Axis Motion-control Time-lapse Tutorial – sandbox/Uli Formula

    Create complex multi-axis time-lapse motion control using Kessler Crane‘s Oracle Controllers I made this tutorial to share a formula I designed (with the help of my plasma physicist buddy Ulrich Buddemeier) to help create complex multi-axis time-lapse, vfx, and other shots with less time in the field and greater accuracy.While the joystick on the controllers works great, I was searching for another option for many complex moves and decided to leverage the accuracy of the nodal points on the Revolution [...]

  • Kessler multi-axis time-lapse #1

    Kessler multi-axis time-lapse #1

    On a spectacular high desert dry lake bed I was experimenting with Kessler‘s multi-axis motion control potential. I knew where and when the moon would rise and planned a 5 hour shot that would sweep across the desert, revealing the moon rise as the camera dollied, panned and tilted into position. I’ve shot thousands of time-lapse moments over the past 15 years, learning how to absorb the surrounding and make reasonable predictions about what future events might unfold, including predicting [...]

  • Kessler / Hurricane 3D time-lapse

    Kessler / Hurricane 3D time-lapse

    This is a behind the scenes time-lapse of the Kessler Motion Control System comprised of the 3′ Cineslider, Oracle Controllers, Camera Control Module and Turntable for a sliding shot with pan. The Genus (Manfrotto) Hurricane 3D beam splitter Rig is supported by the Sachtler FSB4 head mounted on the Kessler hihat. Two Makro-Planar T* 2/100mm Zeiss lenses are used for this shot with two Canon 5D Mark2 DSLRs. For reliable stereoscopic DSLR work, everything needs to match, including all camera [...]

    Mammoth Kessler Motion Control Time-lapse

    These are some tests of a new formula for the Kessler Motion Control System I’ve been working on -  up in Mammoth Lakes. Lots more to come on this process and the results, as well as the low down on how it works.                       here is a movie of the rig in motion: 20110904_Mammoth_NightA_DocTL_xmp15_LG_thesandbox

  • Downtown LA Kessler time-lapse

    Downtown LA Kessler time-lapse

    Some initial tests with Kessler Motion Control gear – Revolution Head, Cineslider initial experiments with using 3 controllers – one for each axis – much more on this to come in future posts. This was also the first round of tests with the Redrock micro3D SxS rig for stereoscopic shooting on the Kessler. Stuart Sperling was there to collaborate with, and being the stereo head that his is, gave me a crash course in stereoscopic principles, and our first motion [...]

    Stereoscopic 3D motion control time-lapse experiments

      Some of the experiments in 3D time-lapse from an article I’ve been working on for Outdoor Photographer will be found here. The rig seen here is the Kessler Motion Control System, Marshall 24″ 3D monitor, Zeiss lenses, and Anton/Bauer power.
