Took a couple of wooden dowels and stuffed them in the rails. Then made a cupholder out of bail wire and put some gaff tape on for cushion so it wouldn't jiggle. It was a fun shot to do. Had to brace the post like all get out when she grabbed the beer but I think the frame is so busy it didn't matter if their was a little movement. We did a 4-5 minute oner in another episode which will be coming out soon.

Did something similar with popcorn and a soda last year. Took me a few takes before the popcorn stopped falling out. The soda was empty though so I had an easier time. Check out at about 1:28 into my reel.

I like it. The focus pulled at just the right time.
Hey Michael, great job holding the frame when they take the weight of the beer off! I was quite surprised they did it (take the beer off the sled) and I don't think there is any focus rack off the beer pint, there is an immediate cut thought.
