The Midas Mount Team produced this :60 spot for Rustoleum Stops Rust – a spray paint that renews, protects and restores items around the house, yard and garage that sometimes get passed on for generations.
The spot stars Midas Mount SnapFocus inventor Harry Gramig and Assistant Editor Bryson Galindo and was shot on location in Harry’s garage. The guys did a great job in the spot and were easy to direct but shooting in the cramped garage was more of a challenge.
Our DP Ray Huang rummaged around the Midas Mount workshop and put together a compact handheld rig which allowed him to tuck away into tight corners and into the ceiling between the lights and still have a mobile and steady camera.
The compact DIY rig we built for the Rustoleum shoot inspired our new HitchHiker Mini, a smaller version of HitchHiker Handheld Camera Support system. It’s a compact, sturdy and lightweight rig that gives you shot stability in a variety of shooting scenarios – especially tight spaces like the front seats of cars or your neighbor’s workshop.
