This basically is the age old problem of sing-operator video run-and-gun situations.
My employer has given me 2 lav mics and wants documentary style 3-person interviews to be done with them, I have no budget to purchase an audio recorder, additional mics or anything for that matter but I do have a boom attachment that can fit onto the tripod.
The 3rd person is actually myself as the interviewer behind the camera with 2-people in front, so I can pin a mic to myself no problem. The mics actually work surprisingly well when placed up to around 2 meters from the sound source but of course they will need to be much closer in the field.
So the only thing I can work out is to attach 1 of the lav mics to the boom pole attached to the tripod but I cannot find an elegant way to attach the lav mic to the boom pole or traditional mic holder that goes with the boom pole. I am not allowed to use any tape or cable ties and the mount must look professional.
Does anyone know of any technique or accessory that can do this? I'm thinking some clamps will do the trick but I'm pretty sure the boss will tell me to take them off so before I go down this path I want a better solution or at least a back up solution.
Thanks for your help!
