Thought I'd ask the pros here what they thought the best way to build a trapeze rig to drop a camera 50-75 feet straight down smoothly and "squarely".
I operated on a commercial shoot with a traditional 2 rope pulley trapeze, but it was not smooth and there was noticeable twisting and swaying in frame.
The shoot is in Chicago and we're looking for rentals locally or shipped or we just might build a rig. We'll be flying a relatively small camera but would be great if rig could hold up to 20 or so pounds.
Many thanks for any advice...
