Here's a repost from Telepathic-Movie.Com :
The second piece of camera support equipment that I built was a type of Figg Rig, or is that Fig Rig? The design is named after its' apparent originator, Mike Figgis [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Figgis ], director of the famous quad-screen ensemble film "Timecode". I once actually saw Figgis do a live remix of that film here in Paris. Much better than Peter Greenaway's later attempt.
