If you're going to NAB next week, please drop by the Matthews Studio Equipment booth C5437, and I'll demonstrate their new cart system. For decades, I’d been using the ‘converted carts’ (with Magliner parts), but was always looking for something more flexible and creative. In 2013, two Montreal grips (each with 35 years experience) helped me fabricate the prototypes. Because its built with standard film industry parts, including 4 baby pins… everything in the grip department just fits.
Hello all, I've recently pulled the trigger on a camera cart as I have a shoot coming up where having one would be extremely helpful. Rather than go the route of a modified Magliner (for cost reasons at the moment) I found a great local deal on a brand new Rubbermaid 4546 cart with 8" pneumatic tires. I'm a DIY'er at heart. I love making something work for me through my own efforts. For the past few days I have been looking for a resouce as to what mods others have done with this kind of cart and I haven't find very much. I visited the Backstage Equipment site and found very few accessories for the Rubbermaid as compared to the Magliners. I understand that the Magliner and/or metal camera carts are much sturdier and modifications to these carts are not suited to my plastic cart unless I put a metal skeleton on it. Modifications I have considered are: carpeting the shelves, handle modification to make it shorter so it can fit in my car standing up, sliding drawer for tools under top shelf (which is an add on from Rubbermaid). What I'm looking for are any thoughts or experiences you all have had with these carts, any mods that are a must in your opinion or maybe even some specialty ones. Pictures would be helpful but any information I can get is awesome. Help me build the best DIY camera cart!
