Flowcine Black Arm OFFROAD

Seen a lot of good stuff coming out of the Flowcine Black Arm + Ronin 2 rigged to speed rail on a camera car.

I have a project coming up where we're trying to shoot an actor running through some rocky desert. Anybody have experience with this type of setup in off road terrain? It seems like it would bode well on a vehicle with 4WD and decent tires.

Yeah, the Black Arm + R2 combination works pretty great. I haven't taken the combo off-road yet but have done some high-speed whipping around (cornering and bumps at 60+mph) and the Black Arm can take a real beating. The combo works great on a UTV ("Side-by side") off-road vehicle. it sounds like for your project you won't be needing that kind of speed, and the Black Arm is designed to handle rough terrain.

 

If you have budget to hire specialists, by all means do it, but I was doing a spec project and basically had to do all the testing/rigging myself, and it was no problem at all as long as you're given the time in prep. I had the time to pre-rig the UTV with all the speedrail I wanted, so that changing camera mount positions during production was super fast. Feel free to PM me if you want more details/BTS pictures/rigging tips/etc.
