I appreciate everyones help and input.
Yes, I definitely need to add a vehicle mount to my kit. There are several more items that need to be added, but at the moment its about priority. I also just put a downpayment on a house so the kit is a bit fixed at the moment...my wife looks at every monitor, motor, or wireless repair and purchase as a mortgage payment. I look at them as kit rentals to pay the mortgage...
Jay and Jerry got in touch with me regarding the skate dolly. There didnt seem to be an SOA rickshaw (available at least) but yes, I was under the impression that SOA kept one for rental. Perhaps it was on set.
Tom Wills was instrumental in helping me arrange a vehicle mount as well as dolly and rickshaw rentals in the Philadelphia area. Yall should reach out to him if you find yourself in need of anything in the area.
I see operators such as myself often asking about available items in regions and cities. Do we have a list of sorts with specialty (or regular) items and their owners with whereabouts? It might be nice to have an ongoing list with all the cities and owners of rickshaws, this, that, and the other. Maybe steadicam-ops.com is utilized in this way with the state breakdown. Just a thought.
