Reflex Motion Control provides cutting edge motion control equipment
and services in association with our technology partners...
Reflex Motion Control is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. As the country's only permanent motion control service since 1994, Reflex has over 20 years of valuable experience in delivering cost-effective motion control services to the film and TV industries.
With one of the world's oldest film industries South Africa's experienced crew, professionally equipped gear houses and stunning locations, now ranks it as a top destination to shoot TV commercials and feature films.
Reflex was the first company to use industrial robots in the film industry, at a time when everyone thought this was not the way forward. The current use of industrial robotics, especially in the high speed area, has vindicated what we at Reflex always thought.

Industry standard equipment such as Mark Roberts (UK) and Kuper (USA) remains important as the control software lends itself to an easier exchange of data with graphics platforms used in post production. Reflex represents both these suppliers in South Africa and is developing a skills base to ensure that imported motion control rigs can be operated by local crew.
We continue to provide cutting edge motion control options to our clients, never relying on just one type of rig, but offering a range to ensure the right equipment is specified for the effect, consulting from concept through to final production.
Browse through our rigs and send us your script or storyboard for your next project. Motion control may be daunting and seem expensive, but when properly planned it remains the most cost effective tool to deliver photorealistic in-camera effects.

The Milo shoots with Orange on Ambrosia

milo motion control

Have a look at this previs of a complex move for Ambrosia. Originally intended to shoot this on the Motoman, Reflex encouraged the client to use the Milo as this was the best rig for the job, even though financially we would have been better off using the Motoman. This is critical when spec'ing a rig for a moco shot, the more preparation the better chance of delivering the shot as intended. The client and Orange Films were great, we worked together on this before the shoot and the shoot itself went smoothly. The commercial has aired and we will shortly post the final result.


The Mini Mo goes upside down

The latest Huggies shoot with production company Hey Darling required time lapse shots with the Mini Mo in a tight location, and the best way was to shoot with the rig underslung. We had not done that before, so we developed a rail system for this shoot. It worked perfectly! Watch this space for more news once the commercial has been released.
