07Feb Riser plate for camera sliders

I was on a shoot a few months ago where we were using the ifootage Shark S1 slider to slide the camera back from a subject to reveal an object off to the side that was out of frame at the beginning of the shot. If you’ve ever tried to use a slider in this manner […]

11Mar Shark Slider S1 on sale

I’ve been taking the Shark Slider S1 out on a number of shoots and it’s been very impressive to use. Very smooth motion, easy to control, and much nicer than the Konova sliders I’ve used in the past. Hopefully I’ll get a full review up on the Shark Slider S1 by the end of the month. Regardless, the […]

23Dec Shark Slider S1 in the wild

11Sep Building rampage, Fireball v90 CNC

I spent this weekending hunkered down in my basement, knee deep in sawdust. I’ve been tied up with so many other projects that I haven’t had time to setup a proper workflow for my Fireball v90 CNC router. I’ve been meaning to spend some time on a linear bearing slider for awhile now and I was […]
