Boom operators - Cool photos

Recommended Posts

I tried to move this video from another thread started by me and called "trouble uploading funny video" because I thought it would fit better here. I'm not sure what I did and it seemed to disappear so here it is again. Sorry!

Regards

Peter Mega

Maybe not quite ready for prime time but this team filling in for Kevin Compayre looks to be a winner.

this topic inspired me to search through a few of my archived photos...

Ladder P.O.V. and Booming in the rain, were from a film earlier this year.

Twin booms are from a telemovie a few weeks ago (Recordist Mark Cornish stepping in with 2nd boom)

Beach shot is from a film a few years ago up in the far north west of western australia. (recordist scott montgommery is middle right) image courtesy of stills photographer

I had that same problem with the Rycote mount for an MKH70, and was assured by two or three people, "this is the way the zeppelin has to work." We couldn't figure out a way to flip it around long-way down and get it to work. Every other microphone fit fine in its respective mount.

Has to be a GoPro. If so, you beat me to the punch. Cool Pic.

I do a lot of time lapse w mine. I was going to shoot over the mic and show it's POV. I never considered  pointing it back to the operator and set... Very cool.

hey Crew, i saw online where some company is selling mod'd egg timers that you can mount a go pro to. i made my own, but its awesome for doing a 360 degree timelapse. shooting at a 2 sec interval it gives you about a 46 second movie at 23.98. i'll see if i can find the link for you.
