Jibs and Sliders

Shooting with Jibs and Sliders increases production quality by varying the types of shots that cannot be replicated on a tripod. Use of this equipment allows more diverse shooting styles and PRECISE smooth movements resulting in an elegant final production typically associated with high-end cinematography.

A jib is used to create vertical “boom shots” or horizontal “swings”.  It works just like a crane, and must be counterbalanced to the weight of the camera.

A slider is a framed dolly system that can optionally mount on stands or a tripod.  It allows for perfectly smooth horizontal movement of the camera.
