You know those "tasty videos" that Buzzfeed does? They are always so intriguing because they put the viewer in the front seat to make the actions of each recipe seem so easy. The legs of a tripod get in the way, so we had to create our own solution. I decided to make my own camera mount to be able to film these overhead videos for some of my craft projects and painting process videos. Sheldon was sweet enough to help me build it. We drew out a little sketch so we could cut and form pvc pipes to the right shape and size. I love how it turned out. It was only about $8 in materials to build!
Basically all we did was we had to measure the length and width of my desk/workspace and then had to decide the height that the camera should be held at for filming. Once we had the dimensions the rest of the math was fairly simple. We had to get a little creative with the wooden stand for the camera to rest on. It was the center of an empty spool of rope which we cut down to size, painted white, and then used velcro to secure. We were lucky that the hole was the perfect size for the lens to fit through. I love it and have used it for several videos already!
