Help Get the ZipShooter Camera Dolly Project Off the Ground
Or on the ground in this case. Paul Jackson is has introduced a new product on Kickstarter he's calling the ZipShooter. It's looks kind of like a mini-tripod with wheels, but in this case, the legs are jointed, and the ball -head is reversible, and able to hang from underneath the dolly (or maybe it's the legs that bend backwards. These types of surface dollies are nothing terribly new, but the versatility of this device looks extremely useful.

Hello there! I've always wondered what are the pros and cons of freelancing vs owning your own production company? I know that if you have your own production business you need to take care of lots of paperworks and even a great deal of money. But with freelance, you don't need to worry about this sort of stuff.
