Extended behind the scenes mini doc chronicling the stop motion music video for the Shin's track - The Rifles Spiral.
Jamie Caliri is the Creative Director of Dragonframe Software. In this short film he explains the development of Dragonframe and it's new motion control capabilities. He also introduces us to his new company: ARC Motion Control and the Volo motion control crane.
Here is a short piece describing how motion control was used in the filming of The Shin's stop motion music video The Rifle's Spiral.
Here is our stop motion film for THE SHINS track: The Rifle's Spiral.
The film mixes traditional puppet animation with 2D paper hinged animation. It was shot at our stages in Ojai CA. We shot with the Canon 5D, and 7D and 60D using Dragonframe software. For moving shots we used a rig called the Volo by ARC Motion Control (arcmoco.com). We also used a nice camera slider by Dito Gear.
