A Jib -Made in Cartagena-

On November the 11th, the day after we arrived to Cartagena, Danny and I adventured into a metal workshop to put together the jib (“grúa”) that you see in the picture. Basically, a jib is a parallelogram that allows you to move the camera up and down and sideways, while keeping the same camera angle. The total cost of the inversion was around U$100 and the footage is looking amazing!

Here I was shooting the biggest Macondo tree of the tropical dry forest at El Ceibal.  The Canon 7D and Danny and I have been suffering of a little bit of overheating. The Ikan monitor, however, proved to be a great production tool .


For U$150 the jib has enhanced the production value of the Cotton Top movie. (Photo by D.Schmidt)
