Boom…. DIY Boom Pole that is! This project takes you through building a DIY Boom for use with a microphone or any other relevant device. The approximate price point is about $25.oo hover, based on your selection of options and add ons the price can go up from there. This project can go as basic as a PVC pipe cut to your desired length or as fancy as a painter’s extension pole.
To Scirm or not to Scrim? For the cost of under $30 you too can make a large DIY scrim that can be broken down for travel. Scrims are great tools for dealing with harsh light, reducing the intensity of and softening harsh light on subjects being filmed or photographed.
Never underestimate the value and power of a good reflector! On a scale of 1-10 (10 being most difficult), this would probably be about a 2 or a 3. Supplies should be readily available from just about any art & crafts or hobby type store. White, Silver or Gold you decide.
