DIY Tuesday: Camera Stabilizer

The characters in "Working Title" embody the DIY spirit that we love. In honor of that spirit, we will be featuring a different DIY (Do-it-Yourself) project every Tuesday

Camera Stabilizer (steadicam)

Made this camera stabilizer (steadicam) about a year and a half ago and it proved to be pretty awesome. It cost roughly $20+. I bought everything from Home Depot, and actually picked up the wood for this in the trashcan of home depot. 

I followed the design and steps from the youtube channel Indy Mogul

If you have time I suggest going through their channel, they have a TON of really cool DIY videos for filmmakers!

Camera stabilizers have a learning curve to them, but it doesn't take too long to see some dramatic differences in your shots!! And as always, feel free to ask questions!

Happy stabilizing!

Faux Concrete Wall

Interested in giving your room that industrial look? One of the best ways to do that is to paint your walls with a faux concrete style. Dan de Jesus, one of the creators and producers of Second Star NYC, did this to his room. Check out the photos. 

Faux concrete walls bring great texture and character to your room. The process took about a day to get done with the help of some beautiful friends.

Dan used an inspiration from Apartment Therapy as a guide in painting his room:
