86" Shoot through PLM - Using as scrim.
Jun 1, 2014

I was late last night when the lack of a scrim in my arsenal stuck me. I think there one in my 5:1 reflector but I rarely work with an assistant. I do have attachments to clamp it to my boom arm but I've never used them (using an off camera fill instead). Now there's one on the way.

How do I mount an 86" PCB PLM Shoot through as a scrim. I could fashion a hanging mount for my boom arm but that limits usage to direct overhead hours unless I make a rigid clamp and that could tweak this light boom stand.

The other option I've thought of is using a super clamp to grab the crossbar on my background set-up and sandbag the two 12' stands. The cross bar does not rotate so a grippy faced clamp would allow setting the angle of tilt.

Ideas? Feedback?
