If you are interested in film making have a look at this DIY Cable Cam Project. For about $30 you can achieve some cool Hollywood effects on a backyard filmmakers budget. Who says you have to spend lots of money for good effects? After you build this project be sure to have a look at the Johnny Lee Steadicam project.

"This week on Backyard FX, Erik and the crew build a Cable-Cam to achieve awesome cinematic camera angles like fly-thru and overhead shots. The Cable-Cam is like a camera dolly, but instead of being on a track, the camera is in the air on cables or rope, so you can shoot above the action."
