Help for vertical Shoot #alexa #crane #grip

Hi Everyone!

I’m preparing a shoot in the next days with a alexa mini in vertical mode, (instagram) I have to put the camera in a technocrane with a 3axis head. 
My question is about, how I can grip the camera in the head, in this posición? 

If anybody did a similar shoot can help to me, for make ideas and find a way to do this gentle.

thanks

Ivi,
I’ve done this two ways:
Method number one is to create a set of custom frame lines that match the vertical look you are going for, this way you won’t have to actually tilt the camera. Instead you just have to crop the video in post. 
Otherwise, method two would be to use a 90degree offset plate. These are usually optional rentals with a dolly package.
