New 8 foot camera jib

By - Richard - 20th January 2011

We’ve recently invested in a small portable camera jib . What better way to try it out than by filming Bristol’s beautiful Suspension Bridge in winter. The shots may be a little repetitive, but the following clip provides an idea as to what can be achieved by a single camera operator working alone.

We have recently invested in a 12 foot long Hollywood Microdolly system. We’ll be sure to post some test footage of this shortly.
