Rockadove spins into action with help from Movetech UK


Movetech UK has helped Cardiff based video production company, Rockadove, solve their load-moving problems when videoing large, heavy products, by providing the company with a 1m diameter Maxi Plus Carousel turntable from their retail display range.

The turntable, which Rockadove regularly rent on a short-term basis, has allowed the production team to effortlessly rotate a range of large items to create amazing 360-degree videos – which they will use in animation style motion graphic videos.

Once edited, the resulting videos are a stunning example of what can be achieved with a creative imagination and a little engineering know-how from Movetech UK, who have helped turn a simple display turntable into a practical, functional piece of equipment for the videographer.

“We were searching for a solution that would allow us to rotate a range of large heavy goods for a number of projects we had planned, with the resulting solution being able to offer us an effective way to create 360-degree perspective videos” said Lloyd Morgan, Managing Director at Rockadove.

Lloyd then went on to say: “Initially we found Movetech UK via a Google search when looking for a rotating platform, and after contacting a number of different companies who could only offer us rotational systems that were either too small or too large, we approached Movetech UK – and they offered us a wide range of sizes, which gave us a lot of flexibility.

“Movetech UK offered us the best solution, along with great customer service, and as a result, we have created a unique style for our product videos, which have given us the 360-degree perspective we wanted, but without the very high cost of 3D CGI modelling – which has now enabled us to deliver this type of video for medical companies across Europe and the US.

“We have been really impressed by Movetech UK from the start, and having a direct contact on hand to answer any questions or queries is always an added bonus. The products we have utilised have always been of great quality, and have always been delivered and collected on time. Additionally, for use when filming, it was essential that the rotating platform offered a smooth and consistent rotation, which is exactly what we get each and every time.

“We look forward to working with Movetech UK going into the future, and would highly recommend them.”

Kamil Winogrodzki, Movetech UK’s Customer Support Specialist added: “Rockadove are an excellent example of how to create eye-catching and imaginative videos, and this is backed up by the wide range of amazing videos they have produced for an array of companies and agencies including The Royal Mint, NHS, Barclays and Tesco to name but a few.

“A great example of their creative flair is a product video they have recently produced for Invacare (Europe) using one of our rotating platforms. They filmed a wheelchair on a green screen whilst it was revolving on one of our turntables – their production team were then able to chroma key out the green and place the captured footage of the wheelchair into a motion graphics environment, which then allowed them to rotate the product freely around the space – such an amazing idea!”

Kamil finished by saying: “It’s always a pleasure when dealing with everyone at Rockadove, their professionalism always shines through, from enquiry to completion. We would like to wish them every luck with future projects, and if a turntable is required for any forthcoming productions, they know exactly where to turn!”
