Setup from the tree

Below is a series of pictures that shows how I run cameras in a tree while filming outdoor television.IMG_3011

This is called a base. It is what holds everything to the tree. The base ratchets to the tree which locks it to the tree. IMG_3010This is called an arm. The bottom of the arm goes into the base and the top of the arm has cup which allows the camera to sit in. The arm pivots which allows for the camera to swing wherever the operator needs it.

IMG_3009Atop of the arm, is the camera.This is a Sony PMW-300. This is the primary camera used when filming in the tree.

Just thought everyone would like to see what it takes to film out of a tree.
