While working on Green Planet we had a need for a system that could work with small macro subjects and perform extreme high precision macro filming including timelapse, video, focus stacked timelapse, and even photogrammetry captures.

Rather than trying to build a robot to move around a subject I build several robots with small shooting stages that can move the subject. The Micro Filming Stage is designed as two parts that work together.

Camera Riser – This 4 axis portion controls the Pan/Tilt/Focus/Lift for positioning the camera.
Shooting Stage – This is a 3 axis stage for the subject. Capable of payloads of 35lbs, it has an X/Y leadscrew positioning as well as Rotate to move the plater to/from/side-side/spin.

The combination of these two systems allow for a high level of accuracy and subject manipulation.

Powered by Dragonframe Stop Motion Animation this system is capable of timelapse, stop motion, stacked timelapse, 3d photogrammetry filming and more.
