Today’s DIY Friday is a cool car mount from Indy Mogul.
Instead of Your FX this month, Zack shows you how to build a car rig for about $35 bucks! Tune in tomorrow for the Test Film!
Indy Mogul’s Backyard FX features cheap, DIY filmmaking tips and tutorials including special effects, props, and camera equipment. ‘Build’ episodes on Mondays and ‘Original Short’ test films on Tuesdays featuring the build.
This is a DSLR shoulder mount made from PVC. What makes this one different than the last PVC shoulder rig we posted is that it has a glider built into to it. That’s pretty cool, and really sets this version apart. Thanks to Jon Barnes for posting it on vimeo. Click here for more info.
It’s DIY Friday, and this is a pretty rad setup from the guys over at Cheesycam.com. It’s a wireless transmitter that allows someone to pull focus on a DSLR mounted to a steadicam without losing balance on the rig.
The idea is to build my Steadicam setup to use a very shallow depth of field. Of course I can’t pull focus on it without knocking it off balance. If I can stream the video out, someone else can monitor the video and pull focus with a Wireless Follow Focus for me. (I’m still shopping for one).

It’s a PVC shoulder rig! Beats spending a G for Redrock… maybe? Like them on Facebook and build stuff.
