Thread: DIY Dolly, will any cheap roller blade wheels with bearings do?

  1. #1

    Default DIY Dolly, will any cheap roller blade wheels with bearings do?

    As the topic says, will any wheels do as long as they have bearings? I'm based in Thailand and I can't find wheels on their own anywhere :( So I'm going to have to buy a pair of shit rollerblades in a toy store or import which might end up pricey.

    What do you think?

    I would say you could get away with any wheels so long as they are smooth running and you can get them on some sort of track.

    one of the guys at our video club has just completed a Curved dolly. we tested it out at the last meet.

    he used the wheels from a cheap skatebaord from Argos. it works amazingly well

    New Home Made Track Dolly Test - YouTube

    Here it is, my first test shots! My attempt at the old contrazoom was pretty poor and juddery. Literally maybe my third attempt of trying it and it will take practice! Also my first go at using a dolly. I'm really pleased with the results. We opted for some big bearings used to open and shut large gates and it's ended up working really well! Cost about 40 usd to make.

    Very good.

    Actually i bet that conta zoom wouldn't look at all bad sped up with a pause at the closing shot.

    Thanks! Good point actually I think i just made the mistake of playing the 60p contrazoom at 30p. It does look better full speed.
