These are two out of four donkeys that my friends and I built. These scratchbuilt machines are completely functional: the only commercial parts used are the gears and the cylinders.
The diorama is made of two hollow core doors (with some reinforcement to hold the trees). The trees are closet rods covered with sculpamold epoxy to simulate bark. All the pulleys are white metal castings with machined bearings and working surfaces.
You can see some drawings and early build photos of the donkeys here: http://wegmuller.org/logging/index.html

The movie was shot in my back yard with the diorama sitting on a pair of benches. It was shot using a Canon S100 and edited with OpenShot.
