Tech Pick of the Week | Episode 7 How to Rig for the Shot

Written By: Lance Piatt

Welcome to this weeks Tech Pick of the Week. Every week where our Tech’s break down an industry best product, tricks or tips. Last week we broke down a simple haul system for light loads. In this Tech Pick we had to rig our camera operator into a tricky place to get a clean shot.

In order to accomplish this we built a dynamic directional with a reeve line to facilitate camera movement. Tensionless hitches, change of directions, reeving systems to enable controlled descents and ascents. Pulleys, harnesses, working line and safety lines are discussed. One particular product in use is the CMC MPD.

Luke Bryan walks us through some of the gear and techniques we used to set up this shot. If you have any questions on how to set up a dynamic direction pulley system or if you would like to purchase any of the gear used in this tech short visit If you have any questions please call us at 888.600.9116 or email us at
