I know they aren't perfect vehicles for steadicam but i just scored a rather nice wheelchair at a garage sale and thought I would play with it a bit and see what I can come up with. I am thinking of stiffening it a bit with speedrail and of course adding a post to hardmount. Any other ideas? Anyone have links to pictures for inspiration?

Thanks,
Jess

they used a wheelchair rig on some of The Shining -- I'm sure there are pics in the articles about the film.
