Questionnaire - Boom users

Hey Guys,

For my last year of school I am required to make a Major Design Project and I have decided to design and create a boom/ dolly.

For my research it would be beneficial to get peoples opinions of the current systems already available and what issues there are in portability and weight.

So if it isn't too much to ask may you please fill out this little questionnaire. You can be as detailed or as brief as you'd like, all information is helpful.

Age

Occupation

Experience using booms

Have you ever used a boom in outdoor conditions?

What were the conditions like?

Were there any issues when trying to set up the boom?

When setting up the boom, how long did it take?

Do you find the weight of the boom to be too heavy to transport?

Is transporting a boom ever an issue?

Thanks

Will
