Down-n-dirty quickie car mount

Thought I'd pass this along...

Found myself on location needing a very low but fast dolly shot... faster than I can actually dolly, and much longer than the track we have (I needed to follow a runner in a stadium).

I thought I'd just do it with my Jeep, but being an unanticipated shot we didn't have any of the gak with us needed to rig a car mount, and certainly nothing that low or in that position.

Trusty ol' Harbor Freight was nearby and $15 and one trailer-hitch attachment later I had an underslung car mount that worked like a charm.

Great thing is that they have these hitch attachments in various different drops and lengths, etc., and all dirt cheap.

"Harbor Freight. Just don't buy our power tools."
