New Small Steadicam Concept, made from LEGO

Hello Guys,

I'm currently in pre-production for a movie about a dog, for which i need to follow him running through the fields a lot. I figured i needed a small steadicam, something that could be held in one hand. I found many types of small 'steadicams', but they never cancelled out big vertical movements. Or they were electronically controlled and expensive. So I figured something out myself..

To test it, i build a concept version from LEGO:

As you can see it's still far from perfect, but hey, it's just LEGO.. It's under development and once it's made from proper materials with presice joints it should work a lot better. I'm currently consulting with partners to 3D-print parts etc.

I'm eager to hear what you think of the concept..! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

That looks like a really good idea! Is it for gopros or other cameras too? Because with such a wide angle lens like a gopro it seems like the arms would get in the way.
