Motion Control – Filmmaking with optical illusions & layers of time – tutorial MDEpicEpisodeS2E01

We are going to show you how robotic motion control works, and how precise it can be.
Together with the High End production house "The Marmalade" we built our own real life optical illusion using forced perspective and different layers of time. And, we are going to take you through the production from concept to post.
Also, we show you how you can use motion control with relative affordable gear in your projects… for example to create surprisingly realistic miniatures with the help of programable sliders.
