Carpenter Job in New York, New York

Hello,

I am an independent filmmaker, and I'm currently in pre-production on a trailer for a digital series.

One of the aspects of the trailer and series itself is filming from first-person POV.
While we are able to mimic walking shots from a first-person POV with the help of a stabilizer, we are not able to do so with head movements which is crucial.

We found a DIY video about creating a helmet meant to house a DSLR in order to mimic the head movements, but I am not a craftsman and neither is my production partner, nor do we pretend to be. I wanted to inquire if this might be something for which you could assist us. I have included the DIY video below for your reference, and would love to speak or meet with you in person at your earliest convenience. The DSLR we currently own is a Sony A7sii and the lens that we will be using are a 18 mm prime, a 35 mm prime, a 24-70 mm, a 100 mm and a 50 mm lens. Please let me know if you have any questions and/or concerns.

The helmet should be able to:

support a small mirrorless Dslr - A7S2

Support a wireless follow focus

And various size lenses. (So it needs a adjustable counterbalance system - typically it’s free weights)

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Warmest regard

Like the helmet should be able to

support a small mirrorless Dslr - A7S2

Support a wireless follow focus

And various size lenses. (So it needs a adjustable counterbalance system - typically it’s free weights)


If he ask what will you attach the the follow focus to, then you can give more details and explain what you own as in-

Shape shoulder rig which includes a Dslr cage and that the follow focus your interested in comes with a small rod and baseplate that attaches to the DSLR.
