    Default Camera overhead rig/tripod

    I am looking for a camera rig/tripod similar to that used in the following photo:

    CHOCOLATE BTS 5 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Can anyone suggest how where I can hire one (in the UK), or buy one, or how to make one? Is it just simple poles and clamps, and if so, where can I get them? Any suggestions?

    There is a behind-the-scenes video of how they produced the animation here if that helps anyone identify them: Behind the Scenes of "Chocolate" on Vimeo.

    Cheers
    Tom

    Looks like it was cobbled together using tripod/support bits. A manfrotto Superclamp and some poles should do the trick

    I always find Speedgraphic have a good selection and their service is usually spot on too.
