Cinevate shares a clever idea of adding wheels to their Simplis stabilizer rig allowing them to get more creative dolly / tracking shots. They've provided it with the name 'Trawly'. Very clever stuff guys! What do you guys think?

It's no secret, people have been building DIY Camera dollies for a long time. You can follow the instructions on the video above, but in my experience, it's a bit tricky to get things lined up perfectly. If you don't have it aligned correctly you get a little wobble or binding in your movement. If you want to save yourself some time and money you can buy pre-built dolly wheels here, and then just get a piece of wood for the stage.
