      I’m trying to learn some TVC techniques. (I’m a non-professional and I just want to improve my skills) But I realized it is very important to shoot motion footage. Especially when I try to shoot a product such as a cup or a vase.

      And it is really a big challenge to move my camera as I wanted it to. I found those sliders and turntables are expensive and not user-friendly. So, I wonder is there any solution for motion footage shooting?

      Thanks a lot.

      The answer to your problem is to be found right here in Videomaker Magazine: take a look at https://www.videomaker.com/courses/717/how-to-make-your-own-table-top-dolly?utm_source=enews&utm_medium=email&utm_content=video1_2016_fri_06_03&utm_campaign=traffic, “How to make your own table top dolly.” It’s easy to do, inexpensive and very effective.

      Good luck.

      Hey Jack

      Thank you for the DIY Dolly. Great idea! But I’m still thinking how can I shoot footage like “desktop jib” does. Because I want to move the camera not just in horizontal level. I’m looking for something allowed me to move the camera in 3 dimensions. Obviously, my hands does not work well enough. But your answer does help a lot: )
