Our hydraulic gimble is designed to move a whole set or set piece like a boat or aircraft. It is especially suited to ship-at-sea type pitching and rolling movements – which it does in a far smoother and more natural fashion than the traditional type of gimble with rams mounted underneath.
The rig can support up to 5 tons and is powered by it’s own 40kW diesel power pack with 40m of hose to keep the sound of the power pack well away from the gimble itself. It is designed to be hung from a crane.
The rig can be suspended in or over water to puppeteer a sinking ship or to support a set for shots inside a sinking vessel.
Currently the gimble is based at Pinewood Malaysia Studios, but it is easily transportable, housed in a 20′ shipping container complete with all the associated tools and equipment. It can be assembled on location in a day.
‘Speed Rail’ rigging set with one trolley of 98 aluminium clamps and another with 72 aluminium tubes.
All the clamps are ‘Kee-Lite’ from the UK, the pipes are 6061 T6 Aluminium alloy, 12 pieces each of 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 & 200cm.
We do also have an assortment of cheese plates, cut and welded aluminium ‘L’ shaped tubes etc. available, please email or drop in for more details.
