For decades directors have used motion to bring life to a story within the frame.
ON THE GROUND
In the early years film directors moved actors around a set to create movement within the frame. As cameras became lighter and smaller it was possible to move the camera by pushing or pulling, raising or lowering them. Today there is a wide range of ways to move a camera with the use of robotic technology. All of these tools move along a computer controlled path or a spline which allows for high or low speed movement that can be precisely controlled. This enables repeatability and the tuning of the path (or the shot). This finely controlled motion can greatly enhance the emotional impact of a story and is only limited by our imagination.
IN THE AIR
Today it is possible to add another dimension to movement. We have always dreamed of flying and now with today’s technology we can see like our winged friends.
HodgeArts has the ability to film from the sky. Weather you are looking for b roll footage for a film or document something that would be impossible to see with traditional camera tools from the ground. We can provide the knowledge and the skills to get you the picture you want.
“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
IT'S ALL ONE
We can combine these tool sets to bring the closest details to light and show the large contextual view from above. In the air we have the tools and skills to bring you stunning imagery. Weather it’s a 100 yard dolly shoot seven feet off the ground or a city scape from above the trees, its all possible.
On the ground we have a wide of range of motion tools, from a simple single axis dolly, or a motorized 2 axis slider all the way to a full 3 axis crane that works in the studio or location. We can capture moving time-lapse imagery or slow- motion film footage.
In the Air - In addition to filmic applications there is a broad range of industrial applications including agriculture, energy, real estate, the news media and online retailing that all can be filmed from the air or on the ground.
