Moviebird 35/45 Telescoping Crane

Moviebird 35/45 Telescoping Crane

The Moviebird 35/45 is a versatile telescopic crane that is a go-to piece of camera equipment for Film, Episodic and Broadcast TV, Sporting Events, and Concerts. For heavy film and cinema packages it operates with a maximum extension of 35 feet and can be quickly adjusted to 45 feet for lighter-weight remote head / camera packages. It is transported by its own custom trailer which also contains 48' of dolly track and covers for rain or snow.


We offer multiple options for remote heads, but generally run our MoVI XL package. Together, the telescoping crane and 3-axis stabilized head offer some of the most dynamic shots possible.
