hello, this is my first query to the site so I may be rusty with protocol and the basic running of the forums but here it goes.
I'm shooting a gatorade spot which calls for a shot that goes from an ECU into the iris of the eye and we have no money for MOCO. Any suggestions? A macro lens needs to many turns of the focus barrel in the final few inches and I do not know the experience level of my focus puller in pittsburgh. Hence my problem. Any suggestions....

get a long lens system such as frazier if pana or tyrex if pl mount.
or extension tubes.
this way you already are at a long distance from the subject.

but often this special shot is made with the capacity of the puller to turn the barrel

an other idea is to motorize the focus barrel so the ac is able to "zap" from a start mark to a finish mark

good luck

Hi,

FWIW you wont get 'into the iris of an eye' in one shot. Normally there is a 3d takover when the eye is nearly full frame.

This is very achievable with a half decent post team. basically shoot the eye as close as you like, then shoot the ecu plate. then comp and digitally pull from one to the other. done it myself on a film a made for a perfume company.

the digital move is the place when you can crap out if you don't get a great post team. then again if the pull is fast you can get away with a bodge job.

Hey Marc. It's BVD here. I'm not sure if you've shot the spot yet but there is also the Scorpio remote focus puller that hooks up the dolly track. I did a 100mm macro shot off a beer tap dripping from 15' to inches tack sharp the whole way. This system is neat beacause it connects the scorpio with a little cog system on the dollly & track and once you set all your marks with dolly and lens you simply just push back and forth and the barrel goes spinning any speed you need. Our shot did take 40 mins to program you have move focus set move focus set move focus set etc. but it was worth it. it's poor mans moco. We got it from clairmont toronto. peace out. bvd
