I'm a student and I'm working on a Vespa spec commercial as part of a class. I'm trying to find out if it's possible to rent a camera mount that would fit on a Vespa, and/or a mount that could go in the back of a pick-up truck, and/or a side mount that can be operated from the passenger seat of a pick-up truck or car. And how much any combination of those things would cost for a student shoot pick-up on a Friday, Return on Monday. I've been looking through LA 411 and searching online, but I was wondering if anyone here had any suggestions of places to call. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

I remember a motorcycle rig from a vendor called Doggiecam, this was a few years ago, but I think they're still in Burbank and in the LA411

This is the candy store for grips from around the world and it's in your neck of the woods. On the bottom of there website is a link to a rental company renting all the stuff they sell. This company (with whom I have no affiliation) Has just about everything you need to rig a camera anywhere. Take a close look at the 5/8" rod system for building off the vespa to some sort of plate or head or both.
