Camera Track Dolly

    Making a Track Dolly: To attain some degree of professionalism with shots you often need a smooth tracking shot because simply panning the camera looks decidedly amateur. A dolly that runs on wheels is not that expensive to purchase but it really only of any use on a smooth indoor surface. The only way to get smooth tracking shots outdoors is to use a dolly that runs on rails that can be laid down over rough terrain to get that shot you really need.

    Using wheels at 45 degrees By mounting sets of wheels at an angle, they will not only run on a smooth surface but will also run perfectly on most types of tube too. Our simple to make PVC tube dolly uses inexpensive skateboard wheels to construct a dolly that will run on most tubes from 25mm up to 100mm and is simply and cheap to build too…

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
