Amateur filmmakers will want to check out the CineSkates Camera Sliders created by Justin Jensen. This device is a budget-friendly way for filmmakers to capture rolling and sliding shots.
According to Jensen, capturing these shots is only currently possible by using bulky and expensive equipment. The CineSkates Camera Sliders are neither bulky nor expensive. The three small wheels are designed to mount onto the GorillaPod Focus Tripod, which was chosen due to its durability and uniqueness. The wheels are designed to snap onto the legs of the tripod quickly and easily. The end result is an awesome and inexpensive mobile tripod.
Jensen took his creation to KickStarter to solicit funding assistance. In just one day Jensen reached his goal of $20,000 and then some.
