Reuniting The World With Vax Live And Motion Impossible

For Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World, John Perry relied on the Motion Impossible AGITO Trax Modular Dolly System to capture multiple musical performances by creating a custom curved track made to fit the shape of the stage at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

Perry and his team placed the Agito Trax on a raised platform directly in front of the stage, also utilizing the Agito Tower and a ShotOver G1 stabilized head. They shot multiple musical performances including Jennifer Lopez, Foo Fighters, J. Balvin, Eddie Vedder and more. 

“The Agito was loaded with the newest Nova Firmware, which is even more intuitive than the previous firmware,” said Perry. “And, as always, it performed flawlessly. The more we use it, the more we love it!”

Polito used the shot from the Agito Trax as a master shot and as a low moving “go-to” shot multiple times during each performance. “As you’ve seen on Sunday, the Agito was very heavily used, which is a testament to its value to this broadcast,” remarked Perry.

The AGITO has been developed as the only fully modular dolly system capable of working both on track and free roaming. Combining AGITO Trax with Motion Impossible’s Tower and a remote head of the user’s choice enables complete precision of movement. Perfect for use in the studio or on location, AGITO Trax offers multiple safety features, complete flexibility with a growing arsenal of modules and accessories, and an ease of operation not available with any other system.

The Global Citizen fundraising concert advocating the importance of vaccine equity has pulled in $302 million, exceeding the goal for the organization’s campaign.
