MYT Works, Inc. is a design, engineering, and manufacturing company based in NYC created as endeavor of Turn of the Century
Pictures, a film production studio in operation for a decade. Our experience as filmmakers informed the decision to
create MYT Works, primarily our dissatisfaction both in terms of cost as well as functionality with many of the camera
support options available on the market today, hence our motto: Born Out of Frustration. As such, our goal is to develop
innovative, affordable, and most importantly high quality solutions for filmmakers in all levels of production. We
like to say that MYT Works is a company created "by filmmakers for filmmakers," because at the end of the day we would
not make something that we ourselves wouldn't want to use.
When it comes to weight, we’ve built our systems to have the highest weight to load ratio in comparison to what’s on the
market today. For some perspective, both our large Glide camera slider and Constellation skater dolly weigh in at about 25 pounds and can easily carry loads up to 200 pounds. Similarly, the medium Glide and Level 5 camera dollies
are about 15 pounds and can handle up to 80 pounds. And finally, our small Glide and Knuckle sliders weigh
7 pounds and can handle a 20-pound camera setup. With all of the customized accessories that go into filmmaking, we
wanted to ensure camera operators could put as much gear on their slider as possible without sacrificing functionality
and movement. We believe we've achieved this goal.
We believe that MYT systems offer more mounting options than any slider or skater system out there. We’ve incorporated
numerous mounting holes (threaded and non-threaded) on every plate in our systems, whether it’s a Glide static plate or a Galaxy carriage platform, for added convenience.
Any of our systems can be mounted on tripods, monopods, jibs, light stands, 5/8” studs, ¼”-20’s, and even wooden surfaces
with regular screws. We’ve done everything we can to ensure that you can use your MYT slider dolly system anywhere,
from a ceiling to a car hood, and every conceivable location in between.
MYT Works represents a combination of engineering and technology previously unavailable in portable camera dolly and
nodal head systems. We’ve taken sleeve bearings and modified them by adding a wheel support inside to give an even
smoother gliding motion. We’ve turned the average skater dolly carriage into a camera-rigging platform with a plethora
of mounting options and accessories. Our nodal heads are fluid-less – an industry-first. The unprecedented engineering
employed in the MYT design requires CNC machining of the highest caliber and precision, resulting in equipment
with extremely tight tolerances and incredibly smooth motion.
