I can honestly say the Panamic boom pole has never let me down during my entire career.
Having recently completed work on the BBC’s contemporary thriller Informer, career Boom Operator Jo Andrews takes time out to talk to Canford Marketing Manager, Stephen Gallagher about life on-set and explains why Panamic boom poles are trusted by industry professionals.
I’m a documentary sound recordist, specialising in natural history. During my 30-year career I’ve worked on everything from news to natural history.
Established in 1972 by professional Sound Recordist Colin Charles, Panamic has long been regarded as the industry’s leading Boom Pole brand. Drawing from his award-winning experience, Colin knew exactly what was required on-set and designed Panamic Boom’s to be lightweight, durable and accurate.
Regarded as the leading microphone boom poles by both the film and TV industries, they have been used by such luminaries as Steven Spielberg and the late Stanley Kubrick in their productions.
“I have used Panamic boom poles my whole career. On occasion I have been forced to use other brands just because they were all that were available at that moment and I can honestly say they are just not the same.”
