I have a new tutorial where I explain how I built my own camera dolly that can support the weight of the camera, the camera operator and even the focus puller, if need be. The cost is around $120 (give or take; depends where you buy the materials).
Things you’ll need:
- Plywood $10
- Skateboard wheels $50
(or you can buy camera dolly wheels from Amazon and other online sotres)
- Seat $25
- 6 feet (2 metres) of tracks $20
- Handle $10
- Metal hook $5
PLUS the tools to make this with!
