Drive-by Shooting: Car Shots with the CineSquid Car Mount


This video shows you how.

While you can handhold a camera from a moving car, that requires two people – driver and shooter. And for some shots it’s just not possible to hand hold. Mounting the camera on a car used to require some expensive hardware, but now it’s a lot simpler and cheaper. So don’t let a small budget get in the way of making high production value video.

Cinesquids is a flexible camera mount that attaches to a window, a car, any smooth surface with strong suction cup mounts. These are serious suction cups. They will hold a camera up to about 5 pounds. Ideal for a DSLR or other camera. There’s also a MiniSquid that’s suitable for a phone, a GoPro or any smaller camera. You can male lots of great dolly shots from your car.

If your camera can do time-lapse, you can do some great moving time lapse from your car. This system open up some wonderful cinematic possibilities.
