I love this DIY camera dolly track, built from a $15 “Ivar” Ikea shelving “side unit.”

A few days ago, I found out that the Ivar “wooden ladder” was perfect to use it as rails for my cinema dolly! I can now make some nice sequence shots with this 18€ (USD$15) accessory from Ikea.

[Thanks, Tim Tate!]
