    I am testing the Kessler motion control timelapse kit. It comes in three major parts: 1. CineSlider portable dolly 2. Oracle Controller 3. ElektraDRIVE motor You will need the battery and I recommend the out-riggers, measure tape and a Bogen magic arm for DSLR use. No tools are required to turn a manual CineSlider into an electronic motor driven timelapse machine. I am very impressed with the portability, build quality, and accuracy of this system. It has filled a void in my production tool kit. Please read more in my blog and download a 1080p version of the "graveyard" here: http://www.tomguilmette.com/wp/my-blog/archives/3139

      Our crazy first year as a production team ended with a wild adventure to document the first ever climbing in the remote Ennedi desert of Chad, Africa. After 4 days and 800km of following a GPS coordinate on a roadless wasteland we found ourselves among thousands of beautiful unclimbed towers. Tim http://kemplemedia.com/, Jimmy http://jimmychin.com and I http://rockmonkeyart.com all have a lot of experience in expedition storytelling from the high himalaya to the jungles of Borneo but this trip redefined 'remote' for all of us. We were so psyched to collectively push our gear and creativity with our athlete friends at http://thenorthface.com. Besides the knife fights with the locals and a few lenses lost to the sand things went pretty smooth. We were able to run our entire work flow without a generator using http://goalzero.com solar and battery setups. It was also our first time shooting the motion time-lapse setup on the http://kesslercrane.com pocket dolly which was the secret weapon in so many ways. A director's cut of the final film "Towers of the Ennedi" will screen at http://www.5pointfilm.org/ at the end of April before the full premier at http://www.mountainfilm.org/ at the end of May!

        I have been testing the Kessler Basic Controller with the two foot Pocket dolly Traveler for single axis motion controlled timelapsing and real-time dolly moves. The system is very compact and portable. It is an effective and affordable solution for anyone who wants to add dynamic flare to a timelapse or silky smooth dolly movement to a camera shot.

                I am playing around with the Kessler Oracle controller, Elektra Drive stepper motor on the CineSlider dolly system. I am very happy with the results. Check out this preview blog from the graveyard. Astro-timelapsing is much more fun on a dolly track!

                  I have been testing the Kessler Crane Shuttle Pod dolly system for the past few months. Really great piece of gear. If you already own a newer version of the Kessler Crane, you already have the track! I explain what the Shuttle Pod is, how to set it up and how to use the Oracle controller and ElektraDRIVE motors. Check out a multi-layer scene where I clone myself in a motorized dolly move and, later in the video, watch some epic motion astro-timelapses. Check out my blog at http://www.tomguilmette.com and http://www.kesslercrane.com for more.
