Motion Control - Modula Rig

The Modula rig is designed to make full use of its modularity by enabling the user to adapt it to any shoot, whether the requirement is something very fast and compact to quickly follow some action or be very portable, or whether it needs a full jib arm system for filming over a product. The Modula rig uses the Ulti-head pan tilt moco head as its basis and then builds up from there. Camera moves can be imported and exported to CGI, such as XSi, Maya or Filmbox.
