How can you make a camera look up, down, left, right, etc on a crane?

I am making a crane(jib) whatever you call it and I have a concept for the crane itself but not for how I will actually move the camera. I heard wires work but I can not seem to grasp teh concept.
* It is a heaver camera by the way*

    On a real camera crane you would press the up and down button that moves the “wrist” part of it. ( I drove a forklift). If you are doing to yourself you’ll have to rely on the “elbow” movements. I might think about renting a Genie lift. And letting someone be your hands in the thing. Unless you know how to build a fully articulating hydraulic ball-joint?
