The Cage

A unique, purpose-built facility designed by Big Shed and Grips Innovations UK for taking overhead shots with no obstructions. “The Cage” offers the perfect no-nonsense solution for the majority of overhead shot requirements.

It’s motorised too:  Essentially a motorised platform that traverses the Big Shed main studio roof space (a distance of just over 12 metres) offering camera operators numerous viewing angles.

The advantages:   No wasted time building scaffolding towers or gantries – also giving clients the ability to use all the available floor space. No compromised lighting to your subject or set. Easy operation with ultra-quick set up. “The Cage” offers many views to large infinity cove and was designed by photographers for photographers.
