I'm directing a small independent short this summer. The protagonist mows a long yard in the opening scene and I want to capture this with a long low angle in front of him. I'm assuming it's not a good idea to rig anything to the mower, let alone put my camera near it. On top of that I can't lay track in front either for obvious reasons. I was wondering how well do doorway dollies like the Fischer 9 operate on grass, or if can they even operate on grass? I appreciate any cheap solution for this shot!
