Although it is not imperative that you include a pan function for your jib, I will say that you should add a dolly base or wheels to the base of the jib if you don’t. This way, if you need to pan the camera, you can “fake” it by moving the entire rig…It may be harder on location to do it that way, but not by much. And as for the build, you will have a much easier time.
Hope that helps, and snap some pictures along the way…I always enjoy seeing people thinking outside the box.
