    Not your average DIY Dollie, Trolly, or Slider.

    I made this last week for a low budget shoot and I thought I'd share.

    That's pretty neat! Do you have any test shots from it?

    Awesome It seems you've seen my system, but then there's no way you could have ;)

    Good work!

    Sweet! I like that use of the electrical tubbing. Cheap, easy, and effective. I'd like to see it spray painted and see how it looks all cleaned up. Also test footage would be great!

    Thanks guys. It's a pretty heavy duty unit and I bet it could easily support a fully loaded RED ONE. I used it with a fully loaded AF100 with a Hyperdeck Shuttle, rods, mattebox, SmallHD, FF, etc. I only used it on 2 shots in that low budget short and only one made it in the film. I had some problems because I accidentally tightened the two halves together too tight the first time i put it together and got flat spots in the wheels. I was able to smooth out the shot used in the film in post. Anyway I returned the wheels and I'm awaiting new wheels to be shipped. I'm also putting some sort of stopper so it can't accidentally be tightened too much again. I'll ask the set photographer if I can post some pictures from it being used on set.

    I wish I had a local outlet for speed rail. I'd have to get it shipped which blows up the price. Always stuck using PVC.
