Live Events – Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, Hyde Park, London – 24ft Jimmy Jib

without comments

June was our busiest month of the year, and we spent three days at the Main Stage in Hyde Park, London, with our 24ft Jimmy Jib camera crane. As part of the multicamera mix, live on LED walls throughout Hyde Park and other areas of London, we covered the festivities in both driving rain and bright sun!

Jason and Chris rigged the Jib, and Chris operated with Jon for the show days. Our usual method of operating the 24ft arm and upwards, is to rig it for two-man operation – one to work as Grip for arm-swinging, and one to operate Hot Head. Having covered the Geneva Motorshow, Olympic Torch relay and the Hyde Park Diamond Jubilee celebrations in this way, we’ve got a good system of working.

Rigger: Jason Torbitt
