Sorry if this is a basic question but I am new to this..
I want to record a video where the actors will talk and dance. I want to have playback for them to dance to but dont want the playback picked up by the mic used for the dialog, this will just be a condenser on a boom, or maybe just the cam mic. I will drop the final sound track in later.
Sotoday I finallyfinished my microphone boom! Since I'm super low budget and microphone booms cost a lot of money, I used a DIY design I found online using a light bulb changer kit and some hardware.
Sure,it's not as light weightas professional ones, and Ihaveto wrapthe miccable aroundtheoutsideinsteadofhaving itinside, butI also paid ametric crapton less. :)Igaveitaquick trythisafternoonanditworksquite well,so I'mhappyso far.
Icanfinally un-mount my shotgun mic from my camera... although nowIneedtofind a boom op. :-P
