Introducing The Bolt – MOONJI’s Favorite Robot
Whether you’re in the production industry or not, you may have seen the bolt in action already. Every year at the Academy Awards, The Grammys, Golden Globes, The Emmys and People’s Choice Awards, a director and producer called Cole Walliser takes to the red carpet with his GLAMBOT – a bolt-type high-speed camera that captures glamorous poses in high-definition slow motion.
With this in mind (and if you’ve yet to see it, check the video below!), we can introduce you to our very own robotic arm camera, more affectionately known as The Bolt.
Developed by company Freefly Systems, The Bolt High-Speed Camera Robot is the fastest of its kind – capturing images in crisp focus that would be impossible by hand or any other method.
This camera system is designed to capture high-speed action in a variety of settings, from sports to industrial environments, films to red carpet glam. The precision and speed of this cinema robot adds an entirely new perspective to filming and its wide range of movement can capture almost any visual angle and achieve speeds of up to 150 mph.

One of the key advantages of the Bolt is its ability to capture smooth and stable footage even at high speeds. This makes it ideal for capturing footage of fast-moving vehicles, such as cars and motorcycles, as well as athletes in action. But even in a studio setting, this camera performs spectacularly.
At MOONJI Prodcuton’s studio, we offer the best in LED Wall screens and Unreal Engine world building, as well as a full suite of cameras and, of course, The Bolt.
The Bolt allows us to capture footage from a variety of angles and perspectives that are often impossible to achieve on regular camera suites. Its precision movement – from standstill to full high-speed motion and back to a complete stop in fractions of a second – allows us to capture the fastest action or the smoothest cut or transition with pinpoint accuracy.
According to The Bolt’s website, “The precision robotic arm is capable of horizontal and vertical movement speeds of up to 2 meters per second, and 180-degrees of rotation in 1 second. In summary, the Bolt cinema robot can keep up with almost anything!”
The arm itself is controlled by Flair, with precise and intuitive controls that allow up to 500 axes of motion and interfaces seamlessly with many CGI packages. It can even be placed on a track for an added dimension of control during a shoot.
Overall, the Bolt is a powerful and versatile camera system that is capable of capturing smooth and stable footage at high speeds. Its robotic arm allows for a wide range of movement and makes it possible to capture footage from a variety of angles and perspectives.
And while the Bolt is a specialized and sophisticated piece of equipment that is not cheap to maintain, MOONJI Production offers some of the best rates in the industry, paired with an in-house team of digital world builders, producers, directors, creatives and technicians right here in Bangkok, Thailand.
