We need a high angle and all we have is a Sprinter van. No scaffold …no roof rack…no plywood…losing the light

Good thing we have a 3iSpreader, with 3 rubber tips on a slippery metal roof.

We climb up, set up and roll

Our 3iSpreader can adapt to any terrain

Without sandbags or apple boxes

We get the shots and Bill is happy but wants a few more angles just in case so…

We hustle on down the road until the sun sets.
