FIG RIG
After years of using the Fig Rig on his award-winning films, Mike Figgis
brought his idea to Manfrotto. An idea that is non-traditional in design,
but purely simple and effective. The only modular system in the world
to smoothly support the DV camera and act as a frame to mount all
the accessories – including zoom controllers, mics, mixers, lights,
monitors, arms... A circular frame with a crossbar to mount most mini
DV cameras, the Fig Rig becomes part of the body to produce smooth,
steady travelling shots. It is this very fact which is the secret to the
Fig Rig. As the operator walks, his/her muscles and tendons absorb
all the shocks, transferring only fluid movements to the camera. As
there are no straps or harnesses attached to the Fig Rig, quick and
wide movements can be made within the same shot, from ground-
level to overhead, in one smooth movement. The camera, accessories
and operator become one, allowing you to film scenes quickly and
unobtrusively. With the Fig Rig your creativity is virtually limitless.
