Hey there, Currently looking for a solution to rigging a 2K above a large set inside of an industrial coolroom. We did this the other day in a way that I would like to avoid doing again due to its stability. Old Solution: C-Stand with cartalini gripping another C-Stand shaft at full length. Light at the end of that arm, Everything was shifted back by roughly 15 degrees and added 75kg of shot bags to the other end for counterbalance. Once raised, it was panned across and then ratchet tied to scaffold that was inside the coolroom. Rough Floorplan: https://imgur.com/a/zPrlZHq We were/are limited to a few things right now; * Stands - C Stands are our best stands as of right now. I have the option to hire out another that is more suited, this is what I'm mainly looking for right now, but the footprint of larger stands don't fit inside the area we have. * Can't light from the inside of the room - a lot of it is handheld and wide angle that covers the majority of the room. * Flats can't be moved ( weight of the set pieces inside) *Flats start at 2.4m at the door and end at 3.2m behind the bed. * Roof of set is completely defused. I'm primarily looking for a better stand to help raise and reach that will be more stable than the c-stands with all the weight that was on it. Thank you! Jayden
As I already do sound seriously, I'd like to get into the lucrative career of sound gripping, thus looking at grip gear to get... specifically these combo stands on Aliexpress (sorry, I can't afford anything better on my $10/day rate!). Anybody tried them before, what do they think of them? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4m-studio-Combo-Stand-Tripod-Load-20kg-for-Light-2k-5k-HMI-Compact-Par-1-2k/32265490574.html https://www.aliexpress.com/item/PRO-3-4m-Combo-Stand-Tripod-load-40kg-for-Spotlight-5K-HMI-4K-M40/32796936968.html https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4m-Studio-Combo-Stand-Tripod-Load-20kg-for-Light-2k-5k-HMI-Compact-Par-1-2k/32596647221.html
Hello, I wasn't able to find any posts on the topic with a keyword search so I figured I'd start one. I am currently looking into picking up some c-stands and combo stands and wanted to get the opinion of someone with first hand experience using the Norms Studio Equipment brand. I have used other brands of c-stands and combo stands but I don't believe I've ever used Norms. Seeing as some brands are more reliable than others my question is how is the quality of this brand? Are they reliable or should I look go another direction? Any help is greatly appreciated.
