The GlamBot, in collaboration with Camera Control, is a cutting-edge camera rig mounted on an automated arm that was used to capture stunning red carpet shots at major events such as the Grammys and Golden Globes. This includes robotic cameras as well. The mastermind behind the GlamBot at each of these shows is a Canadian producer and photographer Cole Walliser. The GlamBot itself is the renowned Bolt high-speed cine-bot by Camera Control that holds a Phantom 4K Flex camera with a Leica Summilux lens.
The main purpose of the GlamBot is to showcase the celebrities’ red-carpet attire with shots that usually include wide angles and various perspectives as the entertainer moves during the recording process. People looking for cheaper or discontinued versions of their favorite products used to resort to groups and Craigslist, but with the growth of GlamBot, that has changed. The company, which started as a side business in 2013, has now grown to a team of 12 individuals and is on track for $1 million in sales.
“The pressure is on because you only have ONE take, and this is a dangerous tool that can take you out,” Walliser writes. Despite the challenges, he continues to innovate and improve the GlamBot experience. Check it out in action at the link: https://youtu.be/ctujwZ1UtWs

Glambot on your phone
Cut the box in half or to the specific size you need to fit your phone and remember that the most important thing is to have the top of your cut box lined up correctly.
Slow-motion video on your phone
Slow motion has long been a staple in the world of video effects and is often overused. In the past, it was only accessible to those with expensive cameras, but with advancements in portable device technology, the slow motion has become much more accessible. Whether you want to emphasize an artistic moment or prolong the embarrassment of a friend captured in a compromising situation, slow-motion is a powerful tool that you should learn to utilize.
Most smartphones come equipped with slow-motion features in their default camera app. To use it, simply tap on the settings icon on both Android and iOS phones and select the “slow-mo” or “slow-motion” option, then shoot your video. To keep the recording from becoming cumbersome, it’s best to capture your slow-motion scenes in short bursts, about five to ten seconds each. (Note that what you record will come out twice or even three times as long as you convert it to slow motion.) When you play it back, the app should give you the option to adjust the slow-motion effect by dragging handles around the video timeline.
