DIY: Tripod Dolly

Home brew Film Making: Tip #1 Easy Dolly

If you’re like us and are not the richest person in the world but still want to make the best films possible, you’ll find ways to cut corners.
Here is a tip for the low-budget filmmaker that we have used to create a good indoor dolly effect.
What you need:
A tri-pod
1 PKG. of Furniture Pads.
Watch video below, this was made for under $10.00.


Neat right. Well it’s totally easy to do.

Head over to Wal-Mart or even your local hardware store and pick up a package of Furniture Pads, The small round things people put on the legs of furniture to make it easier to move them.
Try to get a size that matches the leg of your tripod. The pads have a sticky bottom so they will adhere to your tri-pod.


I saved the protective paper so that when I remove the pads I can use my tri-pod as tri=pod again but, this Is optional of course.

Once you have the pads on you’re ready to go, Practice a bit and learn the texture of the floor you are shooting on. I find it’s easier to slide the tri-pod with my feet locked as far apart as I want the shot and move it slowly within my frame.
I hope this helps and good luck in your future move making endeavors.

The stories also give the audience clues to the history of time that has led them to this situation.

It's a race against time to stop the time thief defeat the chronomorph and solve the murder.

Se knows they escape the robbery and hide out in an old school and no one survives. She must find out who will escape and prevent them from ever leaving. Here the diamonds in question belong to the I.T.C and because they are stolen and never recovered it sets the project back about 50 years. The diamonds are the core of the Tesseract Beam that powers the Time Machine. Ajun faces a hard choice and discovers the true job of a Time Agent.

Sovereignty

Set in 2313 Chris must find the girl named Marilyn and set her on the course to fix the future. Here the world has collapsed as a result of time travel and the impact it has had. Cyborgs have corralled humanity into small camps that they rule with an iron fist. Marilyn a young woman will change all this and teach people about their forgotten humanity and lead them against the cyborgs and to freedom. Her efforts also eventually help to create the parallax Project, the organization that Chris and Ajun work for. Now Chris has to find Marilyn and keep her out of the hands of the Cyborgs so she can fufil her destiny.

Ultimately all of these stories converge at the end and the fate of the universe hangs in the balance.
