Nice work! I see the benefits of a tall jib now. Do you have any control of the camera pan and tilt while it is on the jib?

Very impressive!!!
I just loved the shot when the camera collided with a branch - and the next shot of the branch being carried away...

Very cool! Beautiful shots! But it must be a bit hard to transport it to filming locations? Nice description, I'm from Sweden so I have not problem with Danish texts.

Actually it not very complicated to transport. The two metal pibes (each 3 meters) can be seperated from each other, som I can transport the system in a normal car... :-)

Wow!

Okay.....in all my years on this board I think this may well be the coolest thing I've seen yet. And you've shared it all, Jacob--the amazing rig itself and that beautiful footage! Thank you so much.

And I agree with Robin--that bit with the tree branch was funny!

Jacob: That is very cool.

I have a question for you and everyone else. What is the largest DIY Jib arm/crane have you seen? I want to build something very big.

I'm building a similar jib with "string-controlled leveling" but instead of heavy pipes I'm using aluminum square tubing which seems pretty darn sturdy. I'm happy with it because it's extremely light (maybe a pound for an 8-foot segment) and they sell slightly smaller square tubing which fits inside the larger size so I can make it extremely extendable. 30 feet baby!

BTW Jacob that footage is simply amazing. Gets the butterflies goin' in the stomach :) I had to watch the tree-branch segment five times to get the laughs out! The slapstick sound and casual fade to the next shot over smooth classical music is what makes it hilarious.
