Redrock Micro One Man Crew Camera Slider Overview

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.

question

Is it possible to manually tilt as it tracks? Or does it tilt automatically
Asked by: Anonymous
It does not tilt automatically nor should you manually tilt it as it is running. The one man crew is really meant for a 2 camera setup. Camera1 would be the manned and Camera 2 would sit on this unit unmanned. Trying to tilt this unit while it operates would give unwanted shack in video and also mess with the tension on the belts running it.

Can this be mounted upside down from the ceiling and used with a ptz camera?
Asked by: John
This system is not designed to be mounted upside down to work in that way. It may be possible, but it would be a completely custom set up which we do not recommend.

question

Has anyone used this with an FS7 or F3/F5 fully rigged?
Asked by: Jeremy R.
If the camera/lens/battery/tripod head is under 22lbs, we see no reason any of those cameras would not work. Just don't try a 70mm IMAX camera on it.

question

Is this sturdy enough to ship on an airplane without a hard case?
Asked by: Mark
The One Man Crew Director can be shipped, but needs a hard case for checking on an airline. Check out the Pelican 1750 or 1770 models.the included soft padded case is good for general packing and transportation. also make sure when you travel with the One Man Crew to insert the trolly locking pin (covered in the included instructions)! thanks

What is the distance between mounting points if ...

What is the distance between mounting points if one uses two light stands or two c-stands for holding up the two ends of the slider?
Asked by: Paul
The exact distance is not listed, however the physical length of this product is 46 inches long and as you can see by this photo the mounting points are almost right at the edges. There is probably around 42-44 inches between the points. https://bit.ly/34hzt8b

question

Is this normal? When I turn on the one man crew and start it in the left direction when it reaches the end of the track it stops and makes a loud knocking noise... then it will go right or I need to push the right button. After that it functions normally. But is that common? It doesn't seem correct. Please let me know so I can send this back before my 30 days are up. Thank you!
Asked by: Gabriel
It's been a while since I used our slider but I don't remember it making a loud sound anytime.
