The Camera Goat is a modular slider that affords you the convenience of getting the perfect shot, even in the unlikeliest of places. This innovative design is the brainchild of seasoned cameraman, Boulder's Jeffery Garland. He says, “I fell in love with long creeping dolly shots early on in my career, however, I was always dissatisfied with the added expense and the limited functionality of the equipment that was available.” This is why he set out to create a slider that is affordable, easy to set up and can travel anywhere effortlessly.
The Camera Goat is an off-road dolly that has all-terrain capabilities and unlimited flexibility. With to its four independent adjustable legs, this structure is unique in its ability to level on any surface. Because it is modular, any length of slider can be created and can be done so in a very short amount of time. The Camera Goat is durable enough to handle anything from a large IMAX camera to a very small GoPro.
The resurgence of American manufacturing is of the upmost importance. Construction of the Camera Goat will provide jobs to 60 American factory workers. Surely its production could have been taken overseas for a fraction of the cost, but the company’s mission is for all of its products to be Made In The USA.
As a small business owner, funding for such a device is challenging. To bring the project to life, it has been taken to Kickstarter.com. For more details and to help fund The Camera Goat, click here.
