On the ABC Pilot "Charlie Foxtrot"....
The Director and Cinematographer requested having a few platforms in the pool to place the cameras anywhere needed.
The grip crew led by Key Grip Greg Flores built
two 4'x8' steel decks with leveling jacks and caster wheels that were placed in the water along with four
grips to support the platforms with a Hustler 4 Dolly
from Chapman-Leonard. The dolly was placed on track with an Alexa camera on a lambda head for low moves just above the water.
This rig worked great and everything went smooth!
