topic icon Porta-Jib & Ronin Dove plate hire for film shoot

Maniac Films have just provided our Losmandy Porta-Jib and Dove Block Ronin attachment to Matt of Picture South Hams for a location shoot.

Matt wanted to use his own DJI-Ronin with a Jib arm for extra height and our new Dove Block attachment was the perfect solution to attach the gimbal to the Jib.

The Jib, mounted onto our Sachtler tripod, was strapped onto the back of a pick-up truck, allowing the crew to film a jib shot that tracked along a lane before rising up to look over a hedgerow for the big reveal.

Matt was really pleased with the equipment and said that it worked perfectly - giving him a really stable platform with which to get the desired shot.

As well as the Jib, tripod and dove plate, we also provided Matt with a 4 K monitor and a range of ND filters for the shoot.

The photo above shows the crew setting up the camera for the jib shot.
