Camera Crane

I have been wanting to do this for a while now.  Why would I want to build something so crazy?  The main reason is that I think video production is incredibly fun and I love trying to see where I can enhance the production quality.  It’s not something I see myself using all the time, but I think it can give an otherwise boring shot more punch.

The crane is a parallelogram at its core which keeps the camera platform parallel to the ground throughout the lift (or lowering).
