Did you know that you can use your office chair as a camera dolly? This video will show you how to use an office chair to take dolly / tracking shots! All you need is a smooth rolling chair and your camera.

Step 1: Place Your Camera on the Chair and Roll the Chair While Shooting.

As long as the floor is smooth, you can get a steady dolly shot.

To operate further motions, you can sit on the chair and have a person push the chair while you are shooting. This will give your video that hand-held feel but with more stability.
