Cinopophilia: Redrock Micro Focus Tracking Prototype

http://cinescopophilia.com/redrock-micro-focus-tracking-prototype-via-dustin-poteet/

This is the behind the scenes video done on the “Never Let You Down” spec commercial I did for Casamigos Tequila. We shot the spec, using a single operator and a run and gun gimbal rig, and Redrock Micro MicroRemote system with the new focus tracking system prototype, that automatically keeps subjects in focus.

It was a very early prototype of technology, and we only had a few hours to nail the shot. There is a moment that the shot goes out of focus at the end, but considering the difficulty of the 1-shot combined with the limitations of the prototype, we were happy with how it came out. Enjoy, and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have about the device.
