      That’s a neat idea. It looks fabulous on film.

      That’s really cool. I’m going to have to try that some time!

      damn, that is a good idea. In the past I’ve had success putting my camera on the tripod, folding the tripod closed, and then walking with the whole rig. Worked fine.

      You can also use anything that has wheels on it, like a cart, office chair, etc., just make sure the camera sits steady. I have been once filming a video inside the empty shopping mall. Just a technical video for the property owner.

      There was a flat bed cart sitting in the corner, pretty big and heavy. So I put a chair on the top, sat down in it and ask the assistant to drive the cart through the aisles. I was shooting handheld, but it worked great!

      have you found that it’s better (it terms of shaking and such) to roll the dolly on 2 wheels, or to lie the dolly flat on 4 wheels?
