Neat setup.

But what happened to the background music?

That looks really slick.
If it's not too much trouble would you mind linking to the actual pages for the smallrig parts? They have so many variations that I'm having trouble figuring out which base plate/dovetail and shoulder mount you have there. Specifically I can't figure what part has the mounting holes the v-lock plate is screwed onto.

The shoulder plate is SmallRig part number 1954, it comes with the dovetail and shoulder plate. https://www.smallrig.com/smallrig-vct-1 ... -1954.html
You can see the mounting holes I used on the main image there.

Ah, that's where I was confused. They don't sell that Manfrotto 501 plate separately so I couldn't find any plates with mounting holes in their offerings. Thank you very much.

I have been ordering lots of parts for 15mm shoulder rig aswell (smallrig and camvate mix) + what appears to be some manfrotto quick release plate type 15mm base for camera, seperated from shoulder pad, and some knockoff v mount plate (batteries have all the needed plugs). No cage or top handle for the moment. Hard figure out lenghts for hand grips etc before hand, probably need to get some extendable handles still..... long delivery times makes planning tedious +chinese spring holidays.

Now i should have parts coming to make rig where i can adjust the angle of the battery and remove 2/5 th lenght of the bottom rails, hopefully the rails parts are long enough.. yet to see how well articulating arms work for the 7 inch recording monitor and where/how i attach normal ssd. Oh and no matte box ....and hopefully it wont get too heavy and balances nicely.

btw doesn't the straight pointing handle show up in wide camera shots?

Slick idea using the Smallrig shoulder plate setup.
If anyone is interested, I have anew Smallrig 1954 Shoulder plate kit with Manfrotto camera plate available, $140, PM me if interested.
