DIY Dolly footage!
 
I just finished my dolly! Here is some footage of it in action... just a quick point and shoot, no camera adjustments.

Very smooth though... pushed it forward, and then back.

I'll post some pictures of it later.

Nice and smooth! Can't wait to see the pictures.

Mike Horrigan May 10th, 2007 01:20 PM

Thanks, it actually runs quite smoothly. I can give it a slight push and it will glide for a good distance all on its own.

Here are a few pics.

Mike you have any pix showing the dolly on track? I'm having a difficult time figuring out what kind of track would work with that wheel arrangement without scraping on the point of the angle brackets. Thanks... Steve

Just 1.5" PVC piping... any length you want.

I can post some pictures later if you wish.

FWIW Mike, the expression on the dog's face is priceless. As in, "What the heck is he doing now?" "Will it hurt me?" "Am I going to have to move?"

Looks like a nice dolly rig you've built there.

Yah, he was giving me quite the look. I think it was more like... "If you come any closer I may have to eat you!" :)
