Shooting music videos with TECHNODOLLY
TECHNODOLLY is the main tool used in shooting of the new music video by German singer Bosse. This challenging three minutes long footage was being shot against the green screen in one cut only. TECHNODOLLY sends tracking information to motion builder software allowing the producers to see and work with the scene in real time. TECHNODOLLY also saves time, zoom, focus and tracking information in common format. This enables the postproduction to be faster and more precise. Thanks to the combination of the best robotic camera crane and multiple software features, TECHNODOLLY is the best available tool for this kind of job.

TECHNODOLLY in concert „Belkis“
In Stuttgart, Germany the TECHNODOLLY performed in a classic concert named “Belkis” with a symphonic orchestra and a chorus of 90 singers. The job of the TECHNODOLLY was to cover this continuous live performance of violins, cellos, harp, singers and narrator. There was neither rehearsal time nor any breaks during the evening. In less than 3 hours and only six stand-ins the operator Fritz Brüggert sampled 10 master key frames of the orchestra. With the command “Generate Matrix” the TECHNODOLLY automatically generated 47 moves between all these key frames. The operator added some correction key frames and focuses to all the moves. When the concert began the director could continuously send the TECHNODOLLY to one of the ten key frames. By using the matrix mode of the TECHNODOLLY the operator played about 150 camera moves during the 90 minutes concert. All moves were perfectly framed, in focus and adjusted with pan and tilt override if needed.
