A quick video demonstrating my DIY Blimp/DeadCat using a fan with my boompole.
The Blimp has been done using a PVC pipe (3" Ø) and the mic is held by 4 "O-Rings". Cost like 6$ for a 4feet long pipe.
The DeadCat has been made using a carpet from Wal-Mart. I've removed the anti-skid piece under it and simply kept the furry. Cost 19.99$ for like 3x4 feet.
