This system can fit inside one case and features 40″ long high-grade aluminum pipes that connect together seamlessly with threaded connectors. Check out the interview below: More »

The folks over at RigWheels have now expanded their product line to augment your DIY dolly systems. The new offerings from RigWheels not only make their slider wheels easier to use but also make cameras easier to mount on a variety of surfaces. More »

One of the most consistent issues for filmmakers –especially those that travel a lot– is hauling around a lot of heavy gear (and for those of us on a budget, affording the gear we want to make great looking images).
