Big Shot Jimmy Jibs

Complete with it’s own remote head, the Jimmy Jib can be constructed in various lengths from a 6 foot reach to 24 foot reach. The Jimmy Jib is configured to be operated by a single person who controls the arm movement, camera pan, tilt, zoom, focus and iris on the lens.

The entire system is transportable worldwide as baggage not cargo, to assure equipment arrival with operator.
Our technicians(s) will custom build the equipment to fit your needs, operate the system for your shoot, and wrap out the equipment at the end of the day. We can provide as many additional technicians or operators as you require, or our technician(s) can work with your existing crew members.

Available in sizes from 6 feet to 24 feet reach, the Jimmy Jib can fit in almost any location, and will add production value to any shoot.
