For anyone who has or has had a boom mic, you may realize once you get it that you need a boom pole to go along with it. How else will you be able to get good sound out of your boom mic unless you place it right over your actor on camera? So, when you venture over to Amazon to purchase a boom pole, you tend to see a recurring theme - they're expensive... Very expensive. So, if you're anything like me, you realize you don't want to pay $100+ for a long stick to attach a microphone to, and would rather look for a different solution.
So, today I thought I'd share this video with you that I found while looking for a cheap way to make a boom pole. He has some very great ideas on how to make one very inexpensively using much cheaper things, like a light bulb changer. Hopefully this video will be useful to you in trying to build a boom pole!
