Rigging an Overhead Shooting Station: BTS at the DVEstore!

Jason takes you behind-the-scenes at the DVEstore. Check out all the cool gear that came together to make this killer overhead shooting station!

The Manfrotto AutoPole: very handy indeed!

The Panasonic GH4 makes a great overhead cam, paired with the Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18mm wide angle lens:

The Westcott IceLight 2; great for getting light into a tight space!

The Manfrotto Magic Arm is a surprisingly sturdy way to hang an overhead camera:

Two Manfrotto Super Clamps, mated together at 90 degrees, hold this Autopole rig together:

Excellent sound in a diminutive box: the Sound Devices MixPre-D!

Lots of aluminum here!
