ATV options for steadicam
Posted 18 August 2011 - 01:32 AM
I have a show coming up, shooting bikes and it's all vehicle mount stuff.
Production is considering one of these vehicles (under utility vehicles & carts section):
Which one is the best and how do I make this work with the key grip?
First time doing it so any advice would be helpful.

IMO (and I've done a TON of hard mount stuff) there are only two options, Griptrix and Carpenter Camera Cars. Griptrix are Electric cheese plates and it's a great setup for the under 30mph shoots. For over 30mph or Gas powered stuff just call Jack Carpenter bite the bullet and hire either his 6 wheel ATV or his Go-Mobile (that will do 90mph and 0-60 in 5 seconds!)
In your experience which of the GripTrix would be best for following and leading bikes?
We probably wont go more than 20 or 25 mph...
