ladder dolly. the superior dolly

9ft straight ladder

fastest dolly setup time ever

and get really high angles by climbing it

how exactly did you go about making that?
Like how does it roll , smoothly? I was actually thinking of doing this

Well...

- it's a ladder
- it's clunkier than a slider
- tall grassy field does require some prep (flatten out grass)
- wooden platform could be built lighter w/out as much wood
- it's a ladder
- platform space can be small for putting camera at shoulder level and being stable (can't spread legs really far)


Positives...

- it's way friggin longer than a slider
- no PVC pipe bull shit
- it's a rigid track w/out flex (small piles of rocks level it in moments)
- super smooth + dolly's weight for added smoothness
- this particular aluminum ladder is extremely light weight (parents)
- I can climb trees for added height
- anything that's not a grassy field, sets up in seconds
- it can be set up in seconds
- sets up in seconds
- second setup times
- seconds
- as fast as you can put the ladder on the ground seconds

I had no problem being the only person carrying everything. Camera/tripod/sound in bag, ladder in one hand and platform in the other.

Yeah man , looks like a smart set up.
I especially like the ladder side , crack it open , climb and you can get some higher up shots
