BOLT jr+

Innovate your cinema

Smaller, Lighter, Precision Motion Control

The Bolt Jr+ can do most everything the full-sized Bolt can, but in a more compact size. The body of the Jr+ weighs less than half as much as the original Bolt, can easily fit through most doorways, and can be powered on a standard wall outlet, significantly increasing the number of places you can bring it.

What is motion control?

Motion control is a cinematic technique used to control the precise movement of a shot. Using robot technology the camera’s movement can be programmed and repeated exactly the same over and over again. This ability allows the user to create camera movements and special effects that would otherwise be impossible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the benefit of using motion control when it comes to the post-production?


Post production relies heavily on having good original takes. Motion control is often the unsung hero of effects, enabling scenes from the real world to be seamlessly multi-layered and combined with computer graphics and digital effects. Being more of a production tool, many people see the glitz and praise given to powerful post production graphics packages, and miss the vital concept that without the motion control footage, these high end effects could not exist.

Additionally, because the camera trajectory and perspective is very easily exported from the rig to the post-production tools, CGI backgrounds and fore-ground elements can be very easily and accurately added.
