Hi, this week we’ve been doing some green screening or chroma keying for digital download purposes. We needed a low rig to make a steady, very short, passing shot, now I’m a total DIY, cam man, I’ve used a skateboard before to get a low passing shot, but this time nothing came to hand. So we had a good search around to see if we could find any do it yourself rigs and we found lots a great instructional videos out there. Great! no need to spend hundreds of pounds on the real deal.
Here are a few we liked:
And here’s the skateboard rig used as a timelapse dolly in this video.
Take a look @ FILMMAKER IQ for more videos and DIY solutions.
In the meantime, with a bit of imagination just make your own rig and get the shot you need.
