The MōVI Rocks!

Very excited about this cool new handheld camera gimbal from Freefly, called the MōVI. Not sure why they felt the need to put the awkward, long O accent on there, but whatever floats their boat. Here’s a quick little video of the unit in action…

OK, so let’s see what it can do. Here is a short film made by DP Vincent Laforet using the MōVI for every shot with a Canon EOS 1DC (at 4K) and a Canon 24mm 1.3 Cine Prime (and a Zeiss 18mm CP.2 for the aerial shots). I think they did a great job of showing how this baby can enhance storytelling in a very affordable way.

And here is a really amazing behind the scenes look at the making of the above short.

And finally, here is another behind the scenes piece made by Freefly that shows a bit more detail on how the unit is controlled, along with a pretty cool shot using a remote copter.

What’s exciting about technology like this is that it allows filmmakers and video producers to start thinking in entirely new ways about how they can tell their stories, whether for narrative and documentary films, corporate videos and even personal video projects.
