    Drill Rig! - Always wanted to do this type of shot - (test)

    Yesterday I took a hobby motor and built a drill/corkscrew type rig - ridiculously rough as you can see from the photo - but it worked great - see footage below.

    Now I can finally do those dramatic slowly spinning shots from the ceiling!

    It scares me to death to have my 7D hanging off a crummy little surplus motor, but I finally manned up and took this test - now I just have to figure out few safety precautions and I'm good to shoot:

    It's impossible to get it in a photo, but here's one anyway:


    Enjoy!

    whatever you do, don't have some guy drop to his knees and scream NOOOOOOO! with his head back, as this shot takes place.

    seriously, it looks very cool.

    Very cool. It'd be much cooler if the camera starts spinning down slowly :-)

    Yeah, the best example of this would be attached to a slow crane down to subject...

    I know I'm late, but just checked out your website and the Terminal - d&mn that's hot. Great work. Love the spinning cam too! Wow!
