Building on the award-winning original One Man Crew, the new One Man Crew Director delivers exceptional results for interviews, talking heads, and corporate/documentary work, with unique features for fast setup, unattended operation, and rock-solid results. The One Man Crew Director also proves itself a valuable tool for B-roll, inserts, reveals, and anywhere else you want to replace static shots with fluid camera movement.
New Features of One Man Crew Director
The new One Man Crew Director delivers a host of new features and performance improvements that makes it an even better companion:
A Quieter Crew - a redesigned ultra-low noise drive system keeps the One Man Crew Director stealthy at interview speeds, and quieter at higher speeds. In many situations, room tone or camera cooling can be louder than the One Man Crew Director.
It's all in the New Curve - a new elegant pair of machined aluminium rails, possibly the largest precision machined component in all of filmmaking gear, results in a liquid smooth, gorgeous cinematic movement you'll have to see to believe. These incredibly sturdy rails are engineered for strength to give a smooth ride to any camera up to 10kgs.
Remote Control - an all new full-featured OMC Remote App for your mobile device enables you to setup and control your One Man Crew Director without . Truly unique functions such as "reset for next question" and speed up/slow down allow you to sync the One Man Crew Director with the pacing of your interview. A special gesture mode gives solo interviewers control without taking your eyes off your subject.
Remote Camera Start/Stop - With the OMC Remote App you can start and stop the camera from anywhere in the room. This is incredibly freeing, and essential if you are in front of the camera as well as behind it.
The Ideal Tool for Interviews, Talking Heads, Corporate, and Documentaries
The One Man Crew is the perfect addition to small crews doing interviews and relying on fast setups and higher quality footage with the same budget and crew. The One Man Crew Director improves almost every aspect of shooting an interview, particularly the five shots every interview incorporates:
1. single camera or self-interviews,
2. B-camera closeup shot,
3. the "two shot",
4. the master room shot,
5. the establishing location shot (timelapse).
Use the One Man Crew Director on a single camera, as a second camera, or part of a larger multi-camera shoot. It will produce exceptional, smooth results without requiring a dedicated camera operator. With the remote control app, One Man Crew Director is also great for self-interviews or youtube reviews.
Replace Static Shots with Smooth Professional Camera Moves
Beyond interview use, The One Man Crew Director also delivers beautiful, smooth camera movements for other types of shots. Use it for b-roll, insert shots, product beauty shots, anywhere you use a tripod today. The motorised trolly and precision-machined track gives you great fluid results for any shot you want to enhance. From ultra-slow creeps to fast reveals, you can dial in the exact speed you want. Every take will be as smooth as the first.
Setup and ready to go in 60 seconds
The last thing you want is to be setting up gear and fine tuning it while your interview is waiting. The One Man Crew is a self-contained unit that is simple enough to setup in about a minute. Intuitive controls and laser-assisted subject placement means you can truly "set it and forget it". One Man Crew does the rest, delivering smooth, controlled camera moves for that high-end production feel, all by itself. Walk into a board room, a set, or a hotel room with confidence you can nail the shot.
Completely Unattended Operation with StayFocus™ Curved Rail

Once set up, your subject stays in focus and stationary in the frame without any operator assistance. Push-button ease of use means you are getting the shot, not fiddling with controls and programming while everyone is waiting.
