Check out another one of our new videos, this one detailing assembly of our Constellation convertible skater dolly system! We give you the low-down on wheel attachment, camera mounting options, standard schedule 40 speedrail tracks, and some pretty versatile accessories. We will be amending this video shortly with another showing how your Constellation can be transformed into an instantaneous camera hi hat.
The largest system in our Galaxy line of modular and portable skater dollies, the Constellation platform was designed to accommodate even the heaviest camera setups. The versatility of the Constellation's camera mounts, support options, rigging tools, and more make this package very appealing for a variety of applications. Learn more about putting it together here!
This picture stands as a testament to all our MYT camera sliders endure as they are put to use by you amazing creatives across the world. Though it must have been a hassle to transport this 10ft Large unit all the way to the base of the beach, we know their shots were worth it! How do YOU use your MYT?
Thanks for the picture, CW Films!
We spent the last two weeks shooting a lot of videos in our Manhattan shop. Below, check out the tutorial showing how to assemble your Knuckle mini skater dolly kit. This fully modular system breaks down into very small components, creating what we believe to be the most portable professional slider system ever.
Let us know what you think!
Here's what he had to say about the experience:
"I used the MYT WORKS slider for the first time, which worked great once we figured out how to support it. It’s pretty cool how many smaller third party companies are out there developing equipment for the film industry these days. More tools."
For the record, we recommend mounting with a tripod+half ball adapter on one side and a 5/8 stand on the other. This allows for the ultimate stability in your setup, while maintaining incredible ease of use. We have also released, to positive fanfare, a rosette leg mounting system that attach directly to the ends of your track for height and angle-adjustable legs.
Check out this great writeup about MYT Works by Hammer Lighting & Grip in Indiana, Indianapolis. We are all very impressed by how well they truly "get" our system and all of its possibilities. We met these guys at the National Association of Broadcasters convention two years ago and they purchased two full Galaxy Line skater dolly kits to put in their equipment rental house. They also made totally awesome custom carrying cases for their Level 5 and Constellation portable camera dollies that inspired ours a bit:
They also had some very kind words to say about us! We're blushing.
"If you haven’t had one of our new 'pipe dollies' on one of you jobs yet you don’t know what you’re missing. I saw these at the NAB show last year and just had to have them. I was probably more excited about these than I’ve been about any equipment recently. They’re so well made, versatile and they just look so cool."
Thanks so much, guys! If you're ever in Indiana, definitely check them out. If you're ever in NYC, definitely check us out.
We are so excited to finally have these custom carrying cases in our hands! We spent a very long time working on the design for these cases, striving to maintain the smallest footprint while including sufficient slots and spaces for any accessory an operator could desire. Let us know what you think!
