Chief Productions have been shooting with the bike rickshaw on the latest TV ad for Kleenex’s upcoming winter campaign. DP James Watson and Director Nate Camponi used the rickshaw for several tracking shots of a cyclist and football players.
The Step on rickshaw has been out with the crew from UFA Fiction’s drama series “Valley Of The Fox” currently shooting in N.Wales. The Steadicam was hard mounted to it in low mode for tracking shots of a cyclist along Llandudno promenade.
Barcelona based Steadicam operator Ramon Sanchez has recently taken delivery of a step on/off rickshaw with additional balloon wheels and cycle mount.
Steadicam supremo Alf Tramontin climbed aboard the cycle rickshaw this week for series two of police drama “No Offence”. To shoot a BMX chase sequence, Alf used the step on/off rickshaw attached to the bike. With his rig hard mounted and underslung he was able to shoot dramatic low angle fast paced coverage
I have recently designed a bicycle mount to attach each model of rickshaw to any standard bike. Fitted in minutes, it allows the rickshaw to be towed at speed by a friendly cycling grip. Check out the configuration photos below :
