I’ve been testing a cheap way to get “crane” shots using a Zhiun Smooth Q Gimbal and a modified old boom pole – here’s the result.
This is probably the cheapest way I know to get shots like this on the fly. Carefully thought out and shot with adequate lighting and white balance it could help any student film look that bit more professional.
I was also using the MikMe wireless mic for the audio for the first time. It stood up quite well but I do need to get a modified pop filter to get rid of those plosive sounds.
