The MPH aluminium curved track comes in 4′, 6′, 8′, 10′ and 12′ radii. Four sections of the 4′, 6′ & 8′ curved track make up 180° and eight for 360°. (Five and ten sections for the 10′ & 12′)
Using curved track can give an amazing 3D effect as you get a change in parallax both with foreground and background travelling in opposite directions. Combined with the shallow depth of field of large sensor cameras you are on to winning shots!
There are many versions of track and dolly out there in the industry and I have used most of them. I developed this new track and dolly system with a view to it being lightweight and quick to set up but without compromise to the shot. Also in this age of carbon footprint awareness I wanted to reduce the weight of equipment we cart around the world as film crews.
All track comes ‘flat packed’ in cases suitable for flying as excess baggage. Each case weighs less than 23kgs to avoid overweight charges (and our backs when lifting).
