If you are not handy and have a light camera, I suggest just using a Boom Mic Stand . Here are some choices.

You will need to tinker with the setup for the best shot, but I believe you should be able to get some good shots. Lighting is very important, so don’t overlook that aspect. Good Luck and be sure to post your video here when you’re done.
