Motion Control Photography
When Studio Aniway
in Brussels bought their first Motion Control Rig from Marc
Roberts Motion Control in 1993, I was active in clay and puppet animation production
and was involved closely with the installation and setup of this rig. It
was a Nelson Hardell model animation rig motorized by Marc Roberts and
equipped with one of the very first FLAIR
systems. I soon acquired a reputation of being experienced in working with
it and in the 5 years that followed I shot more than 70% of the shoots
the rig was on, Motion Control being quite unknown and considered new at
that time in Belgium. When Studio Aniway decided in 1998 to acquire a more
flexible and transportable system, I was hired to consult on the matter
which resulted in Studio Aniway acquiring a MRMC MILO.
I still today shoot regularly with the MILO rig and I am also labeled as
the technical director of the Brussels rig. (Maintenance and integration).
In 2006 I designed a concept for a low cost light wight Motion control
rig for stop frame animation only. It was bought by the "La Cambre" animation
school in Brussels and build by Marc Roberts Motion control in the U.K. It was presented in Brussels on december 11 2008 and was called the ANIMOKO.
