In the final installment of our four part series on Teenie Weenie Grip Gear and how to utilize it in the best way to engineer a solid, steady car mount, Stan and Nick go all out constructing a monster rig on the front of the car for a shot of the car’s emblem and license plate. Though most car mount applications require less complex configurations than this, we thought it would be fun to just go nuts and see how far we could take 3/8″ Teenie Weenie Grip Gear. At the end of this timelapse is an on-screen reference of the various pieces of Teenie Weenie grip gear with part numbers so you can easily find and purchase them a la carte from Filmtools to build your own custom creation.
About Teenie Weenie
In the past, the film industry standard, as far as rigging goes, has often been 5/8″ piping and numerous connectors and accessories that work with it. But as filmmaking equipment has gotten gradually smaller – the cameras, the lights, etc – we now have the ability to use light weight aluminum rods.
This is where Teenie Weenie Grip Gear comes in. A treasure trove of modular pieces, all designed to interact with the 3/8″ standard. There are mini grip heads, rods, receivers, and adapters, both threaded and non-threaded. The threads are 3/8″-16, same as the larger of the two industry standard tripod thread sizes.
