The sixth installment in a continuing series from Filmtools on Teenie Weenie Grip Gear, part six covers the various configurations for building bicycle mounts with the GoPro HD HERO2 and the Unruly Headgear GoPro cage. See mounts for over the shoulder, point of view, reverse shot, and inserts of the rear derailleur, gear shift, and pedals. Stan McClain, president of Filmtools, goes over triangulating the camera to reduce harmonic vibration for front and rear mounts. These are just a few ideas – use Teenie Weenie Grip Gear and design your own custom creation! Stay tuned for more videos in the future, including inside-dash car mounts, and motorcycle mounts.
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.
