MICRODOLLY was on location in the Anza Borrego Desert of the Southwestern United States with Director of Photography Stuart Asbjornsen and Producer/Director John McDonald. The shoot was for The Ghost Mountain Experiment, a film that "examines the family of author and artist, Marshal South who chose to live on an isolated desert mountaintop for 17 years."
"We had only a small crew and also needed to hike to remote locations to shoot Indian pictographs," said McDonald. "The ultra-lightweight portable MICRODOLLYJib let us get the dynamic shots we envisioned and still move from set-up to set-up with ease."
Designed for the crews that need to travel light, the MICRODOLLY Basic Jib weighs just over 10 pounds (4.5 kg) and will carry camera gear loads up to 50 pounds (22.7 kg).
The Jib comes in a padded Soft Case only 33 inches (86 cm) long. Set up time is less than two minutes. Extensions may be added to increase the jib length to 9 feet (274 cm) or 12 feet (366 cm).

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"While its compact travel size and extreme light weight are enough to sell this Jib, it's the folding counterweight cage that puts it into the 'must have' category."
