True Motion was born out of the desire for intentionality.
Each of us have been working in the film industry for years and were hungry to add something new to our tool belt, something that requires a very thought-out process on every single project.
We also quickly realized that there was a great need in the local market to provide other creatives with the possibilities that only motion control can offer.
So in late 2021 we decided to partner in this venture and created True Motion Studios, a Denver based motion control company.

OUR ROBOT - SISU C20
The search for the right tool quickly came to an end after we stumbled across SISU Cinema Robotics.
SISU is pushing the envelope in cinema robotics by offering a much more intuitive operator experience, allowing us to not only be more efficient on set by being able to work faster, but also minimizing the hurdle between the creative and the technical side.
On top of that our SISU C20 has some impressive specs:
Wingspan of over 13 feet with
max speed of almost 23 feet per second
fits through standard door ways for on-location shoots
payloads of up to 41 pounds - enough for any professional camera built
