Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas for rigging an Eyemo to a mic stand a singer will be moving around and singing into ----- and rigging to a guitar that will be moving and used during the shot. This is for a very low budget music video. Any suggestions are welcomed --- thank you so much.

If the music video is being shot in 35mm the budget can't be that low :-).
I've seen this done with the Ikonoscop A-cam in super16.
A monopod would be good for the mikestand perhaps with a ballhead.
For the guitar stuff, a counterweighted wood plank would do it.
While Eyemo's are small, I think that they are too heavy to safely attach to a real guitar (without damaging it).

Hi-

Filmtools has a "super-mafer" clamp with a ball head that claims to hold 13 lbs.
