Moco Rig 9 – June 2017

Displayed and demonstrated the moco rig at the Riviera Film Festival in Torquay. Much interest from the public and other filmmakers, and from a college that is keen to construct their own. The rig performed faultlessly all day, taking a hyper lapse of the room.
Two adjustments still to make: adding a small weight to pull the Pan arm to one side to eliminate backlash; and getting to use Dragonframe’s Backlash Rollback button. This takes the axis beyond its zero position so that when it starts a move the backlash has already been taken up. I will try some tests to see how effective it is.
