Hi folks,

I am searching for a selection of vehicle mount stills to show to someone. They are NOT going to be used for publication or web reproduction or anything of that ilk. I just need to get ahold of some good clear stills showing a Steadicam mounted on a golf cart.

Anyone have stills of this set-up, I will be grateful if you can contact me either here in this thread or off-boards by email and send them along to me.

Hi Peter,

Go to this grip web site from Montreal:
Big Dog Gripping Link

Under Pictures, look for "La rage de l'ange" with operator Francois Daignault, look also for the ski-doo rig of The Secret with Daniel Sauvé (I think I recognise his sled). And also a couple of videos under "300" as they shot on the blue screen the warriors on horses...

The owner of Big Dog Gripping is Bertrand Dupuis, one of Montreal's best key grip with his own truck (one of the last few to be independant here in Montreal)

He also modified his electric golf carts (he has 2) with so many features (like a "turbo" button...0 to 27 mph in 3 seconds), adjustable air shocks on the fly, spike wheels for ice... He means business, the rear bumper sticker reads "MY OTHER RIDE IS YOUR MOM" .
No kidding , I wish I had a picture of that bumper.

Nice guy, nice toys that always work.

Hope this helps a bit.

Fly with a turbo button.

Hey Peter,

all the best

I converted a bike rack so it just bolts onto any tow bar.

These are from when I first tested it, the sticking up bits have since been removed to make it safer :)

Sorry just read the Golf Cart bit... that will teach me to run ahead and post without reading properly.
I bet I could put my bike rack on a golf cart anyway...

baerbels hardmount is allways the best solution for me.
here come some pics of it used on a shotmaker we showed at CINEC 2006 in munich.
You can also use it without a euro-mount .

all the best
