A camera slider is important for taking dolly shots, but it can be very expensive. In this Instructable, we will show you how to use a skateboard as a camera slider for dolly shots. We have tested different household items, and a skateboard is one of the great alternatives for a DIY camera slider.

Step 1: Put Your Camera on the Skateboard Deck.

Step 2: Then You Can Roll the Skateboard and Start Recording.

One great thing about this is that you can roll the skateboard for miles and still get a smooth dolly shot. The key is to make sure that the floor is smooth without rocks and barriers. A skateboard really makes a great camera slider!
