Moving shots with tall actors

Hey everyone, 

I am going to shoot some scenes with an actor ,who is one head taller than me.  The scenes demand for a handheld/should rig set-up.  

When the actor is not moving, I can stand on an Apple Box.  Moving shots when I need to follow him are tricky though if I want to keep him on eye level. Any advice ? 🙂

Best,

Dan

There is something called an Ergorig. The cam rests on a support brace that arches over your shoulder. The design looks height adjustable. Perhaps that design might work for you?

Google Ergorig and you'll find various offshoots of the design.
