ASL’s experienced jib operators and technicians have worked on every type of production – talk show, news, reality, commercial, feature, short film, music video, concert, cooking, etc.
The Jimmy Jib can be built from 6 to 30 ft in 3 ft increments. Our shortest configuration possible is a 4ft jib/stub arm.
The Jib arm is built on a movable dolly which makes re-positioning this crane a snap. Our jib can also be used on track with our track wheels. We also have straight track in 4ft and 8ft lengths that can be added to the package upon request.
The jib can be used indoors or outdoors, and it can be used with essentially any camera and lens configuration. We can add one of our Splashbags for capturing images with the jib near water in order to protect the camera. For inclement weather, we can cover the camera and provide our Spintec Rain Deflector to keep water droplets off the lens. The jib is limitless. Add the best, experienced jib crew from ASL, and have no limits!
