Cool Trick!  You could even tilt it even more to one side if you shorten one of the tripod legs. I also put the Tripod's legs together while extended to do some more tricks. Not as stable as your trick but more versatile.

Great tip, but you need to edit the keyframe ibles uses for your index page entry - its a view of the bottom of the camera, hard to tell whats going on.
