If you’ve ever dreamed of being able to afford, or even rent, a camera car crane, Top Crane aims to make that possible.
There are just shots you can’t do without a camera-mounted crane. Sure, a normal camera car lets you get some great angles, but they stay fixed in their position on the car.
You can get some pretty cool car shots these days with a drone, but getting super close to a moving car with your drone presents issues.
If you want to get dynamic, moving shots swinging near a car at high speed, you need a crane mounted to your camera car. You basically can’t do action work, or car commercials, the modern way without it.
Most of the market is dominated by owner/operators and a few small companies selling boutique gear.
California-based Top Crane aims to change that with their new Ghost One, a camera crane kit that can be mounted to a wide variety of vehicles or even packed up in a small number of travel cases.
