Riggin Design provides telescopic camera cranes and remote heads. Beyond the equipment is the human element of experience and customer support. The ability to transform a conversation before the shoot into actual on set results. Reliably, safely, and cost effectively.
The service provided here is a propriety combination of designed and engineered equipment and the skills of implementation for which there is no equal in the industry.

The PowerScopic is intended for exteriors and large studio applications. It has many unique features, but most notibly it is the only crane with an open truss arm which allows wind to go through the arm. Much easier to handle than cranes half its size.
The Scopic20 is an excellent telescopic crane/jib for precision moves. Well suited for interiors, stages, and camera cars.
Operated by just one person, both arm moves and telescopic action, makes this jib a top choice when a small footprint with minimal crew support is needed.
20' maximum reach, camera to pedestal
8' minimum reach, camera to pedestal

The Movi Xl is an excellent stabilized head that works with either the PowerScopic or the Scopic20. It is physically lighter in weight than other stabilized heads which is very beneficial on telescopic cranes.
Modifications have been made to the head to improve its performance.
The Movi XL does everything that its rival Libra and Scorpio heads do at less cost and manpower. Image stability is excellent.
