  1. Aside from all the questionable opinions offered by Andrew, there is one part that is actually false. Fisher dollies (and others) are used on standard 24.5" track made by several companies such as FilmAir or Matthews. They may be used with sled/u-channel wheels or tracking wheels from Fisher (code TTW).
  2. Hi all, Does anyone know anything about this company? Anyone had any dealings with them or buy anything from them? Any reviews or experiences at all? Are they legit and reputable? Or stay away? http://www.futurestudioequipment.com/
  3. Four hours on the clock (half day) minimum unless the travel actually takes longer, then on the clock for whatever it is.
  4. Try FXWest's wildcat system out of Denver. 303.922.2202. They also do spydercam. There's also the trussdolly (or the smaller twindolly) from SGS (www.solidgripsystems.eu). I also concur doggicam can get this done.
  5. I'm not really sure how it works, that's why I was asking. I guess the reasoning would be something along the lines of, it's money that, at the end of the year, is yours, but is specifically allocated to business meals. Honestly, I'm not sure. If anyone is a CPA, or has one who is good with entertainment/crew type people, maybe they can weigh in on this...? No.
  6. Hi all, My question applies to those union members working in NYS. When doing your taxes, do you deduct meal penalties? I heard (from several people) that they do this and that it's a valid deduction. Any insights much appreciated.
  7. If all goes according to plan, I'll be using one of these on a show I'm starting in a few weeks. I'll let you know if you remind me.
  8. Hello, Looking for ideas on how to repair damaged aluminum precision track (ie, FilmAir). Not talking about the cross-braces, buckles, etc. -- talking about the actual rails. Small nicks/scratches can be ok, but anyone have any methods/ideas on how to get rid of, fill in, or smooth out larger gouges or dents in the anodized coating? Looking for local (NYC-based) or personal solutions, not sending back to manufacturer. Thanks.
  9. TobiasDeml- Thank you for the suggestion, but I will be using a monitor. Sean Elder- Anything in particular? I'm looking for something significantly sub-1K.
  10. What about if I took away the requirement of the 4-pin XLR power?
  11. Hello, I am not a company/LLC, but I'd like to rent out a lighting console that I own. What would be the best method/venue to do this by? Of course, word of mouth is an option that I pursue, but does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks :)
  12. Forgot to mention: Although I think it's pretty much standard, something that can take 4-pin XLR power, and has a mounted battery option (Anton Bauer) would be preferable.
  13. Hello, I'm looking for a recommendation for what the cheapest HD monitor would be. Something small (think onboard, roughly 5-7 inches). Doesn't need to be any kind of amazing quality, just something to see an image. Price is probably the most important factor. Thanks!
  14. And this is in the Gripping section, why?
