Less Time

When you're shooting, time is money. Between trying to predict the actors' movements and making sure all the measurements are right, a lot of time is spent on your sharps. And the last thing you want is to logjam the day's schedule because the takes are soft. 

With Andra Motion Focus, you can spend less time taking marks, prepping and rehearsing, and more time on deciding exactly how quickly to execute the rack focus during that tense scene.

The result? You can get your scene and call it a day that much faster, giving both your budget and your cast and crew some much-needed breathing room.

Fewer Takes

Even a small production has a lot of moving parts, and there's no lack of things that can ruin the take. Unlike some mistakes, missed focus isn't something that can be fixed post-production, so the pressure is enormous to get it right. 

And when you do get it right the first time, every time? We're talking about getting the shot, moving on to the next, and keeping the shooting schedule locked down tight.

With Andra Motion Focus, you can rely on sub-centimeter precision to keep your focal points crisp, no matter what happens. Multiple takes and schedule overruns because of missed focus? Not on your watch...or ours.

Handle Less Equipment

Setup can take a good chunk out of your shooting day. And when you add multiple subjects or larger performance zones into the mix, you need that much more gear. 

Andra Motion Focus keeps it streamlined, with a simple end-to-end solution that works with virtually any film or video camera. Because it's modular, you only have to bring what you need. A basic system can be set up in less time than it takes to reheat that coffee you never seem to get around to finishing. 

And if you're moving around? No problem. Our system is easy and light to transport to different sets and locations. So you can reach new heights of efficiency no matter where you are. 

 


Overview

The Andra Radius System maintains focus on objects and subjects by tracking their position within a magnetic field. This field is produced by a cube shaped device known as an Ambit.

Rubberized corners, a lip and groove seal and an internal cradle have been engineered to protect the component from normal production use.

Features

  • Creates an 8’ (2.44m) radius magnetic field.
  • Lemo push/pull power connector.
  • No line of sight needed.
  • Up to 25, in a 5x5 grid, can be used at a time to create a maximum performance area of 48’ x 48’ (14.63m x 14.63m)
  • Flexible grid creation to map out the needed performance area.
  • Up to 100 selectable frequencies, within four channel, allowing up to 4 systems to be used in proximity.
