Hi,

Is is possible to track in 35mm camera below the bed from one side to the other? or atleast till half way?

The bed will have 1.6 ft empty space below it. Is it possible with jimmy jib or any way to cheat such thing?

Attaching a reference snapshot for what I am looking for.


Thanks.

Arri 235 on a skateboard? Just a thought (or the skater dolly). I don't have the dimensions of the 235 on hand, but I know she's small.

Use a Revolution or a Kenworthy Snorkel or something like that on a dolly.

Snorkel is a great idea; wish I'd've thought of it :/

There are those offset off the back 400 ft. magazines for the Arri's. If you can find one of those, for sure it'll fit. A II-C with a flat base and 200 ft. mag would work, too. With a smooth wood floor, you could just drag it on a scrap of carpet instead of messing with any kind of dolly. This is one place where you really want a video tap.

Those are all good ideas. My first thought would be to get a bed with a higher clearance and then any of the above ideas will be much easier to pull off.
