Putting a little camera movement into your shoot adds production value so it’s not surprising quite a few people want to have a small compact lightweight Dolly as part of a location kit.

If you want to get maximum use out of your hire it pays to think about exactly what you will be trying to achieve. Then we can match the right gear for the job.

First of our questions will be – what is the tracking surface? Do you have a nice smooth hard floor suitable for inflated rubber tyres or are you planning to lay track for the ultimate smooth ride?

We have Dollies that can do either.

The basic components are a Push Bar, Bazooka, Ply Base on a Steel spider and tracking wheels in a travel case.

We also offer an optional “cut away” base for the Grip Kit Dolly that is ideal for low angle shots. Despite it’s compact size this Dolly can easily handle any load and is confortable supporting our GFM MiniJib when fitted with the Bazooka.

There are so many combinations to be taken advantage off so please tell us what you are trying to achieve and we will attempt to offer up the right tools for the job.
