Episode 06: The $14 Steadycam


Here's a technical episode!!! In this video, the steadycam is built. The instructions to build it are from this great website: http://www.steadycam.org
If you want to build one yourself, please be VERY CAREFUL, look for professional assistance. I am not a professional, so I had to ask for help to my good friend Joe, who knows about this stuff.

Although the Steadycam is supposed to cost $14 dollars. In our case, it was $16.54. And that doesn't include the spray black paint, and the tennis racquet grip. Still, it's a very cheap steadycam. We already used it, and it's wonderful!!!

Next Week Episode 07: ?????
Oh my God.... I have no episode for next week!!!!!!
There are a few images of things we had to prepare (props). That might be interesting for next weeks episode.

New to this website? Do you want to see all the videos? Please click on the blue word "VIDEO" where it says: LABELS: VIDEO. (Two lines down).

creo que la enseƱanza es que uno no se puede varar !!! siempre hay formas de hacer las cosas casi que que sin costo utilizando articulos desechables , reciclabes, cosas que uno desecha pensando que no sirve para nada, las tuercas de coleccion de la caja de herramientas del papa o del vecino etc. Lo dificil es tener un buen amigo que le ayude a uno ajajaja.

That is so cool, who would've imagined it was so easy to do a steady cam.

Kafre, not only "easy", but it works REALLY GOOD! We used it a lot for the restaurant scene (the first day of shooting), and we are very hapyy with the results!
