This is a short film that we shot in August during a very short meetup with Iza Kurczewska and Dawid Olczak from LongTakeStudio, Warsaw, Poland where we tested the new DitoGear™ OmniSlider Servo w/ V2 firmware and RED EPIC. Guys from LongTake are lucky enough to have the first and only EPIC in Poland.

We had just about 3 hours to play with the camera and tested a few things, so the whole piece is a bit improvised.

This clip was created using the motion recording feature of the DitoGear™ OmniSlider. We recorded a movement with easing, played it back several times while the actor did various things on the set. Then all was pulled into AE and combined together.

*** Tech Notes
The focus was pulled manually - not really fortunate for this kind of test, so there are some horizontal misalignments visible as the camera was heavily touched by hand during each of shots. And the tripods were not perfect for this kind of job.

EPIC is a great camera and together with the new DitoGear™ OmniSlider Servo form a great couple for demanding film work as well as VFX.

The new DitoGear™ OmniSlider Servo is capable of working not only with EPIC, but also with really heavy film cameras with its 70kg of horizontal and 12kg of vertical payload.

The DitoGear™ OmniSlider SERVO is already available for order and upgrade.

Anyway, there was a lot of fun and we hope you enjoy the results.
