In this video by Backyard FX, Erik and the crew build a Cable-Cam to achieve awesome cinematic camera angles like fly-thru and overhead shots. The Cable-Cam is like a camera dolly, but instead of being on a track, the camera is in the air on cables or rope, so you can shoot above the action. Erik shows you how to capture these tough angles like the pros for under $30!

The process is OK but the shot was not that smooooooooooooth!


well..he gave me a lot of confidence in the!


This was an interesting idea, I think I should be able to use this type, when I in May shall make a movie from a MTB-competition. I will use it when I cover the start with more than 300 bikers at the same time. But I think I will change the rope into a steel wire to be shure that there will not be any “broken ropes”
Thanks for the idea,
