Here's a combination of two previous projects that worked together to solve a production problem. The problem was a boom mic shadow that would appear no matter where we tried to place it over head. The solution was to create a plant mic from the shotgun that would hide below a kitchen counter out of camera range.
The stand you see above is a combination of parts from a PVC light stand (the stand + an elbow joint), a 3/4" to 1/2" adapter and the PVC mic shockmount. It assembled quickly and we had our audio.
I seem to find new uses for the PVC light stand parts every time I go on a shoot. They have become an indispensable part of my filmmaking tools. Stay tuned for more contraptions.
