Every man in the industry thinks he needs all the hi-tech gear he can afford. The problem with that is most likely he doesn’t have the money. Everything is so expensive and for those who don’t have the cash (poor college kids like me). So like many people say, “if you can’t afford it, build it.”
You can find lots of tutorials for DIY projects online, but the ones I find most appealing are from Austin Wilson at DVRebellion. He has compiled a list of short easy to understand tutorials. I am already inclined to go start building. Right here is one of his tutorials for a slider.
I’ll be making that one first, followed by his jib crane. He has even more for some pretty awesome stuff you can build on the cheap. Visit his DIY page by clicking here.
