Looking to gain some insight on a rigging setup for an upcoming shoot.
I have a project soon where we're going to be filming some skateboarders, probably from a pickup truck. My goal is to able to both lead them and track behind them, without having to put the truck in reverse. Trying to achieve smooth motion and would love to get low for some of the shots.
I was chatting with a DP (Steve Annis) about the rig they utilized for this video:
Here is the info I got from him:
-all filmed out the back of a pick up truck with vibration isolator and tango head
-for tracking shots: small wooden low platform on the front supported by scaff bars with Boss plate fitting
He wasn't able to provide any set photos of the second rig. Does anyone have any pics of something similar? Haven't had any luck online. Just trying to wrap my head around it. Going to also reach out to a couple key grip's I've worked with.
Also any idea of what this could be done for budget-wise would be helpful. Budget is low but most of it will go towards a good, safe rig to execute some of these shots.
Some frame grabs from the video:
