A tripod is a portable three legged frame used as a platform for the camera. The tripod gives stability when filming stable shots, the camera can also travel in the same spot to the desired direction. A tripod is necessary when filming as it will capture all stable shots. 

The tripod has a number of different heights so different length shots can be taken as well as the spinning top mantel which can be changed to suit the direction of the shot.  The diagram on top shows a basic tripod with key functions to it. Tripods can be varied; the higher the price the better and more functions the tripod has, for my opening sequence a basic tripod will do as it will have the desired features.
