Hello

NTG-2 boom.

A "Boom Boy" or a fishing rod holder (same design but not as long a shank and often cheaper construction) like this Remote Audio Boom Boy - Boompoles - Trew Audio works a champ.

Here's a little video on the 420B that you might be interested in Introducing the Combi Boom - A must have stand for lighting and location sound on Vimeo

Use a simple RODE VXLR 1/8" to XLR adapter to allow the Videomic to connect to a camera or mixer with XLR RODE Videomic at DVcreators.net. BTW, the shotguns might have a hollow sound to them indoors. A hyper or a cardioid works much better in reflective rooms. If you're in a large room, or room with lots of carpets, drapes and angles, you should be fine with a shotgun as long as it is close to the subject.

Here are audio examples of omni, cardioid, supercardioid and shotgun (lobar) pick-up patterns indoors.
