vice-shooters-rig

Great video done by VICE DP’s Jake Burghart and Jerry Ricciotti showing us their custom rigs. While they use C300 cameras, a lot of this rigging could be applied to other cameras.

What do you think of their setup? What modifications have you made to your rig? Or do you stick to standard rig kits from manufacturers?
