Production Notes: Jibs
Nevada Film Office: Sometimes referred to as cranes or jib cranes, camera jibs are devices that are used to create dramatic and smooth sweeping shots through vertical and horizontal movements over a large distance. Camera jibs operate similar to a see-saw with a camera on one end and a counterweight on the other end. The balance point is located closer to the counterweight so that the camera has a bigger range of motion.
