View Full Version : Crane?

07 July 2005, 02:49 PM
Hey guys, I was planning of trying to make a film this summer, and do the best job that I could possibly do on it. So I wanted a crane, and a green screen. There quite expensive to buy so I was woundering if anybody knew how I could possible build either of them myself? What kind of materials could i use? And where could I get them? Even a good way of building a boom stick. Thanks...

Well there are a lot of variables, and you could search cgtalk for the "green screen" stuff. I remember reading about a paint that was decent, as well as a pure green cloth you can buy at fabric stores. My father rented one of those "bucket trucks" that they use to repair phone lines, for around $75.00 but the prices could vary depending on the company. Otherwise the crane is probably more expensive.
