The Snorricam, named after Einar Snorri and Eiour Snorri,or the "Snorri Brothers", is a body mount for a camera which is used to create an interesting point of view, which can be seen in such movies as I Am Legend, Slumdog Millionaire, The Hangover, and most impressively, Requiem for a Dream. I work for a small video production company, and with much enthusiasm from my boss, I designed and built my own version of the Snorricam, which is very adjustable and versatile. For about $30 in parts, and around a day of labor, You can have yourself an adjustable Snorricam of your own! Sorry for the lack of pictures, but i built it before I wrote this 'ible, but hopefully the Sketchup renderings will suffice.
ALSO: I am NOT responsible for dropped or broken cameras as a result of using this rig. This Instructable is merely a guide to building a Snorricam, and should be adapted for your particular setup. I suggest that if you build this rig, you test it with more weight than you'll be using before putting your precious camera on it.
For an adaptation on my design, check out HipHopSuperman's snorricam
