Do-It-Yourself Day

Hot damn! The guy who designed the camera rigs in Killer Camera Rigs That You Can Build is a genius.

Adam and I (along with some help from my neighbor and “Screening Process” extra Eric) spent the afternoon starting construction on a camera stabilizer. Two, in fact, once we realized we had almost enough parts (and had already bought the tools).

We’ve still got some work to do — we’ve just done some basic initial steps on the second rig, and we still need to track down some specialized aluminum pieces to finish them — but we’ve already done the hardest steps. And these things are looking good.

I can’t wait to see them — and whatever other rigs we end up building — in action. The 48 Hour Film Project is gonna be a real step up for us.
