“Gun fight” commercial for Samsung

Raf Wathion invited us to help on his latest project for SAMSUNG. We would need to see laptop computers in a “High Noon” style showdown.

Here on the left is a link to the actual commercial…

We worked closely with FXBox who were operating the MILO motion control rig.

We were triggering our moves with pulses from the MILO. Our system was driven by a frequency controller and belt. A video of the movement can be seen by clicking on the image on the left.

Since working on this commercial we have interfaced with the MILO to manipulate our model-movers as a set of axes inside their software…

Here are the rails and the movement as we prepared them for the shoot.
