I'm Douglas Underdahl.
I designed the Seven Jib XL and Super Track Dolly and do quite a bit of the
fabrication. I'm also a DP and director. I wrote the 16mm Camera Book and have
contributed articles to Kodak publications and magazines such as IN MOTION and
the ASC Manual. I've taught film production at NYU, School of Visual Arts, the
Maine Workshops, and the New York Film Academy. I was co-designer and
fabricator of the remote controlled pan/tilt head for the deep dive segment of
Our goal: To bring new levels of production value to every film and
video project—regardless of budget!
One simple camera crane move could cost close to one thousand dollars...
LONG VALLEY EQUIPMENT is CHANGING ALL THIS!!!
Now, in one hand, you can carry a professional, rideable dolly—one that
supports camera, tripod, operator, and assistant.
Carry 50 feet of track in your other hand.
It'll all stow neatly in most car trunks. Our jib folds to just 34 inches long,
yet can provide a vertical lift of nearly seven feet. Change setups so quickly
that dolly shots and crane moves can be made anytime, anywhere.
You can phone me at 908 876 1022, and talk to me about your shoot or any
problems you might face. Not a machine or a receptionist.
