Absolutely freezing outside, so I keep going into parkinggarages for shooting. Still, at -15 Celsius(5 Farenheit) it's pretty cold inside as well, but at least I can get away from the cold wind!

Hey guys, I use forklifts at work and I have always thought about rigging one. Anyone have any experience or suggestions as to how to mount it? It's your ordinary forklift you would find in a warehouse.

I have seen a fork-lift rigged by my customers a few times, let me see who did it and how, and I'll get back to you.

How many super-clamps do you have? you can attach them together at the back to clamp the boom directly to the cage or the fork. personally, I think it would be cool to clamp/strap a tripod to the front of the forks with the forks in the air and aim it down at the driver, seeing him either under the forks or through the cage.

keedo,

If you can get super clamps on it, you will need these

Avenger E600C 5/8-Inch Snap-In Steel Pin for Super Clamp, Amazon link HERE (external link)

Then with the Avenger F830 Baby-to-Junior Swivel Pins (external link) will be able to mount to the super clamps..

Setup with Small pin:

IMAGE: http://pro.jaegen.com/Share/01-30-2014-752m5H.png

Then i was in my rigging case, saw my longer woods Spuds and thought that looks like it would fit and it does, but doesn't snap lock in like above.. Did not feel like trying my tiny spuds but sure they would fit too..

Also you should try doing it with the pole on the front forks and raising it up high..

First time rigging, love to hear feedback and suggestions! Don't have much seat time in photoshop still working on that.

The first one is the strongest, even though you're headed toward a wall. This is because the car is smaller in the frame. Remember, rig-shots are supposed to tell a story, and what is a story without background? Nothing. You need a longer boom, and you need to think more about your angles.

Ex:
