MX 500 is a revolutionary new, semi-autonomous, RF controlled robotic camera movement system that creates never before seen shots for movies, television, commercials, sports and live venues.
Blazingly fast, ultrasmooth camera moves, which once could only be achieved through the use of special pursuit vehicles or expensive computer graphics, can now be captured live in real-time with Mega Trax.
*Using optional HS gearing
**Run-time dependent on weight, acceleration and distance
***Minimum lens height of 33” achieved with optional low-profile trestles
Like many ground breaking innovations, Mega Trax was born out of frustration, when writer/director and co-founder, Howard McCain, was told by producers that a certain type of extreme action shot he wanted to do would cost over a million dollars and could only be accomplished using CGI. Believing that audiences prefer the jaw dropping “wow” factor of knowing that something is real, and stunned that there was not already a dolly system out there that could do these kind’s shots, Howard turned to VFX Supervisor and co-founder, David Kuklish, to create Mega Trax – the world’s first semi-autonomous, high-speed, robotic dolly system.
Howard McCain brings a uniquely creative point-of-view to today’s cutting edge entertainment production. Having directed such large scale films as OUTLANDER and written franchise films like UNDERWORLD and CONAN, he not only understands the challenges faced by today’s big budget, complex productions, but has an in-depth understanding of the artistic needs driving tomorrow’s producers, writers and directors.
David Kuklish is a visual effects supervisor, with unparalleled engineering and technical knowledge. David has built some of Universal Studios’ most popular theme park attractions, designed first generation motion-control and flying camera systems for major studios, and supervised digital effects on dozens of movies, TV shows and commercials. He possesses both the deep, multi-field, technical expertise and broad conceptual vision necessary to bring Mega Trax to life.
Lee Gartley is a senior executive with leadership experience growing innovative companies. His proven ability to launch new products, enter new markets, and to build products and services that become marketplace leaders underlines Mega Trax’s business strategy and development.
Going where no dolly has gone before, Mega Trax’s newly-designed MX EXTREME robotic dolly will allow filmmakers for the first time to take 90° corners at speed, shoot vertical up the side of a building and even travel inverted above the action – all in one continuous shot!
Building off the ground breaking advances of MX 500, the MX EXTREME incorporates an entirely new, light weight, multi axis chassis design, advanced motion programming features, and whole range of specially patented, shaped track pieces that can be configured into almost any layout you can imagine.
Ideal for sports events, rock concerts, live shows, films and television, MX EXTREME will be able to deliver never before seen knock-out shots for any audience, in any venue, in any medium.
MX EXTREME truly is… the future of motion.
