TECH TIP: Microphone Boom
When you want to get your microphone close to
the actors use a microphone mounted on the end of an aluminum window washing
pole. The pole which extends from 4 feet to 8 feet weighs in at just over
a pound and the microphone and extension cable are attached to the pole using
Velcro ties from Staples.
We use a Propole Model 3208 available from Lowes and Home Depot. Pole, $28
and a pack of Velcro ties $5.
