Flying Wire Rigs For 35mm
>Published : 19th April 2006
>Does anybody have any advice or suggestions for a wire based flying camera system?
>The shots that need to be achieved are with the camera suspended above a person running through a forest. Looking for a London/UK based solution preferably. I've seen pictures of Camera Revolutions Libra rig that runs on wires - but probably too expensive for this production...though I suspect ANY solution may be too expensive for this production....
>I can suggest The Camcat system by Brains & Pictures. You can find the technical details at www.brainsandpictures.com
>Speak with the nice people at www.cablecam.com
>Very competent. Although probably not cheap.
Groupe TSF, Paris
Try Garrettcam.com for the flying rig
>Luca Dell'Oro (Italian Steadicam Op) and his father have build the SHUTTLE CAM, very simple wire rig. They are a friendly and affordable company, and VERY good at what they do.
>Go to the website www.cine-video.net and have a look.
>Say hi to Luca from me if you speak to him (+393486972386).
Usual disclaimers, just very happy with his work.
