Behind the Scenes: Cable Cams

Scott and Mike take you behind the scenes and shed a little light on how they achieve their shots. It ain't pretty... but it's effective.

 @andreDHliv haha that's awesome! I tried to make a dolly that slid on a ladder and it was just awful. DIY gear isn't always ideal...

 Cool! @scottsecco how would one make the metal component that the pulley wheels and tripod head attach to? Is that a special thing you fabricated?

 Hey @sarahlh, the trolley was welded by my buddy out of aluminum. Honestly, I think you could make one that would work just as well out of stuff you could find in any hardware store. The wheels and rope are much more important than the frame as far as shooting goes. You just need something that can hold the camera. Hope that helps!

 Right on, dig the behind scenes. Building sky trails looks like a lot of work. Nice job guys!
