The behind the scenes shots:
June of 2010, DJ Roller of Liquid Pictures hires me to build a camera lifting device to go on the back of a 55' Hatteras fishing yacht. The 3D iMax camera that we are using weighs almost 600lbs with the housing. To make things even MORE of a challenge, ALL the gear has to be flown to a remote island in the Bahamas. ABSOLUTELY NO stores or equipment on the island so everything has to be built to spec, assembled in Atlanta, trouble shot for all foresight issues, shipped and flown by cargo plane to the island..
The Rig worked flawlessly !!
