We have recently branched into MOTION CONTROL ROBOTIC ARMS. We offer the incredibly impressive SISU brand of cinema robotics. SISU have taken a technical leap in motion control. A completely simple yet brilliant operating system that allows dramatically increased efficiency and the ability to get many more programmed shots than you may have ever been used to before. We offer traditional Robot rentals as well as a small in-house TABLE TOP STUDIO. In addition, and through our partnerships with BUBBA’s LA and HURLING STUDIOS we also offer complete production capabilities. BUBBA’s LA are a CREATIVE CONTENT STUDIO who fuse creativity, design, and technology to create amazing content through visual storytelling, for brands ranging from NIKE, YOUTUBE, UNICEF, AMAZON STUDIOS, FENDI, GUESS and many others! Great people who are incredibly smart, attentive and like TCD, are committed to excellence for all their clients. HURLING STUDIOS are a FULL STAGE SPACE including the beautiful LIGHT CUBE – a one of a kind, gorgeously diffused TOPLIGHT composed of 15 programmable LITEGEAR LITETILE PLUS XL LED’s, through a 28’x28′ truss of MAGIC CLOTH from THE RAG PLACE… above a 40’ x 35’ x 16’ HIGH, 2-WALL WHITE CYCLORAMA. No more wasting hours and thousands of dollars on rigging, we did all the hard work so you can get straight to shooting. Just dial in the exact color temperature and brightness of each tile via DMX – all in a comfortable 6,180 square foot air-conditioned studio, complete with ample support rooms, private parking, 495 amps of power, and more!
Emergence was founded in 2016 by company owner Rufus Burnham, alongside a collective of companies like ours… keen to support diversity in Hollywood. The initiative has sponsored numerous short films, documentaries, commercials and even a TEDX event, as well as other projects from underrepresented voices in Hollywood. Emergence offers diverse filmmakers an opportunity to produce their projects with resources provided by us and our Emergence partners. Now in 2021, we have partnered with Hurling Design - Hottrax Inc - Coyote Post - Chapman/Leonard Studio Equipment, Inc. - LITEGEAR - Conshimfee - Phantom Studios To take things to a new level of dedication and support.
