Words from our advisors
“Moon will revolutionize focus pulling. Im sure of it” - Andreas Wessberg
Andreas Wessberg, Director of Photography
"Focus should never fail really, yet still, there are plenty of retakes. Especially during quick focus pulls in dialogue, or during long movements. These difficult jobs can drive you nuts, and this system handles such jobs in a great way!"
Andreas is a Swedish cinematographer known for Vår tid är nu (2017-18), Videomannen (2018), De Drabbade (2003) and so much more. More references at IMDB

It works incredible well for these scenes. This is very promising for the future. - Andreas Fred
Andreas Fred, First AC, Cinematographer
“The first time i filmed with the Moon Smart Focus prototype, it nailed focus on autopilot of 96% of the scenes, without prep and measurements, and I could easily monitor and take control of the remaining 4% - resulting in zero retakes. For scenes like this, it would be hard to achieve 70% accuracy with manual focus pulling. This worked incredibly well, it is very promising for the future.”
Andreas pulled focus on the first short film made with Moon Smart Focus - Tromb. See his references at IMDB and www.andreasfred.se
