Redrock Micro 8-124-0002 overview

  • 1Description

The One Man Crew Director from Redrock is a 36" motorized parabolic slider that lets you add cinematic motion to your video without needing a dedicated operator. It builds upon the design of the original One Man Crew, adding a re-designed low noise drive system for quieter slides, and new machined aluminum rails for even smoother motion with loads weighing up to 22 pounds. The slider also features remote control functionality, letting you setup and control the slider from your mobile device using Redrock's OMC Remote app. Additionally, the app can control camera start/stop recording when used with a compatible camera and optional remote cable. For a ready-to-use package, a Redrock Heavy Load Tilt Head is included along with an AC Adapter, D-Tap DC battery cable, a set of adapters for mounting the slider on light stands or c-stands, two cable wrangler clamps, and a padded carrying case.

Benefiting small or single-person crews, the One Man Crew Director is quick to set up and easy to use thanks to intuitive controls and laser-assisted subject placement. It is able to capture nearly every shot typically found in interviews, including wide master shots, "two shots", and closeups. In addition to interviews, the slider is also well-suited to product shots, b-roll inserts, time lapses, or any shot where you can use a tripod. It can used to operate the main camera, a B-camera for closeup shots and inserts.

Once setup and your subject is in focus, the StayFocus curved rail helps keep your subject stationary within the frame and in focus without the assistance of an operator. This is particular important when using the OMC Remote app on your mobile device to control. With the ability to quickly reset the slider for your next interview question and adjust the speed on-the-fly to match the pacing of the interview, the app is an invaluable tool for single-person crews. You can even use gesture control on your mobile device to control the slider without ever having to take your eyes off of your subject.

    One Man Crew Director Motorized Parabolic Slider is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ADD VALUE TO YOUR VIDEO PRODUCTIONS! This tool adds so much value to your productions! Whether you use the One Man Crew Director for interview set ups or for b roll capture, this device will give your clients that something special they seem to want on every shoot! We typically have used the One Man Crew for interviews but have found it is awesome for certain kinds of b roll, timelapse, and product shooting. The added ability to control via your smartphone app is a bonus! You really don't relize how versatile it is until you use and see how many places it can rest while shooting. Tripods, tables, floor, light stands, c stands and our personal favorite the keyboard stand! Buy this now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY THIS SLIDER Can't say enough good things about Redrock Micro's One Man Crew. We use ours all the time...A Cam, B Cam, B-Roll and time-lapse. Performs like a champ. We were a bit worried using it with our fully rigged FS-700, as it approaches the maximum weight for the OMC, but it works great. We support it with low boy C-stands and sandbags for rock solid performance. As soon as we get a break in production, we are getting ours upgraded to the OMC Director. Being able to operate the OMC with the app will be really convenient. If you want to easily add production value to your shoots, get this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of gear that has changed the game for us! We are a small production company that does a lot of doc style web and commercial content. For years we have been looking at options that give us movement in interviews and talking head shots. We were introduced to the OMC at a local store product showcase and were pretty much sold on the spot for the OMC. Having worked with it for awhile now, it's become an essential piece of our kit and we use it not only for interview movement, but for product shots as well. It's simple, easy to setup and works every time. There have been complaints of the noise coming from the motor, but we find it only happens at high speed. Perfect hardware for anyone who does a lot of interview shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best and easiest way to get huge production value Redrock Micro has had a huge impact on indie filmmakers/producers by continually putting out incredibly useful and well priced tools for the community. The One Man Crew slider is by far one of the most useful tools I use on my commercial and corporate productions. Having the camera move back and forth automatically, along a curved parabolic track ensures that you have smooth, cinematic, and repeatable slider moves that stay in focus! The app that you can download from the iTunes store really improves the usability of the slider. You can change the speed and direction, set end marks, etc all with a tap/swipe of the iPhone screen. The app feels very well thought out and intuitive and is a must download for all OMC owners. The app truly is what makes you a one man crew. I love the OMC especially because it is super easy to set up. I use a 75mm bowl adapter in the middle of the slider, which is enough to ensure smooth back and forth moves without slippage for the cameras I use. ( C100, A7s, GH4, 5DIII). I can probably have the slider up and running in literally 5 minutes. The lasers on the rig help you set the proper distance of your subjects so that they stay in focus, although this is not as critical when you're shooting with a wide angle lens. I've looked at the other alternatives from Kessler, but what sets the OMC crew apart is how fast and easy it is to set up. You literally pull it out of the case, screw on the tripod adapter, mount the camera, plug it in, and you're rocking and rolling. Sometimes I don't have time to build a motorized slider rig, especially when I'm on a job by myself. If you're looking to add one piece of gear to your kit that will increase production value and pay dividends with clients, I would highly recommend you pick up a OMC setup.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned it in one day 1. You could hear the slider running at all but the lowest, very slow speed. My microphones will pick up this sound at most of its speeds. 2. It seemed that when motorized the mounted head had little jumps near the left side. 3. The controls are not intuitive and the manual said every time you turn it on you must calibrate it by going to the left. However the unit did not operate correctly when going to the left since it never reversed direction. It kept trying to go left even at the end of the track and this generated a popping sound as the sprocket that interfaces with the rubber belt was popping past the belt's vertical steps. The rubber belt also lays down on the bottom of the unit and you can hear this sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The game has changed I used this recently on a 30 day documentary. The One Man Band proved to be one of the most useful tools for shooting B-Camera during sit down interviews, B-roll slider shots, and dynamic timelapse sequences! The slider is ready to go in less than 2 minutes, and changing settings is very easy from anywhere on set using the iPhone app. If you are a small production group or freelancer, you NEED this slider in your life.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Currently a big paper weight! I purchased this two months ago, still have not been able to use it. The box was open when I received it and the adapters in order to plug it in were missing. B&H says they're trying to contact Redrock and when I talked to Redrock, they suggested I buy a $50 plug that should have been in the box in the first place. Hopefully customer service comes around so I can actually use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gear The first version had noise issues, this one is really quiet. They changed the motor and inserted sound dampening.
