Tracking Shots Ep.4 – The High-Speed Human Dolly

In this episode of Tracking Shots we introduce you to the team from Loaded Boards. Spoiler Alert: They are all crazy!!! You’ll better appreciate this statement at the :48, 1:24 and 1:32 mark of this clip, where you’ll witness the high-speed human dolly in action.

Aside from being crazy, these guys are extremely skilled and obviously possess a creative eye…or two. This clip pulls you in and makes you feel as though you’re flying down the road with the riders.

    Adam, I just wanted to say that this clip is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time. You guys totally made my day, and indeed my week with this. The slider shot into seed scatter was simply brilliant.

    Cheers,
    Dennis Wood
