Working with Jib arms

Jib CSSJib arms and camera dollies produce wonderful looking effects.  It does require quite a bit of skill and practice to master them but when used properly, the shots can be really spectacular.  When using something like a crane or jib arm, crews must use extra care when operating them over crowds.  Even small jibs like the one used on this project weighed in over 300 lbs.  Clients who have never used one on a shoot are often surprised that the smallest amount of camera motion can add an amazing amount of production value.
