We have been experimenting with affordable dolly tracking systems. Here is the latest result using focus35 wheels. The lighting setup worked out rather nicely too! The trouble is setting up the pvc pipe. We used 1 inch, schedule 40 pvc pipes, but they only come in 10 ft sections, so we cut them in half and are figuring out how to put them back together without them bending, having a bump where they are joined, the dolly rolling off the end of the track, or the tracks separating. The trick to these shots is to practice it several times and move VERY slowly. We also highly recommend an external monitor for the camera, so you can clearly see the shot and add a second motion to the camera if you want.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
