We used the Rode NTG-3 along with the Zoom H4n recorder.

Using a Movi Pro Handheld stabilizer, we attached our Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro and mounted it on top of a kitchen table. This allowed our DP to use the remote sensor in another room for the clockwise pan.

We challenged ourselves to shoot a one-shot film, choreographing the entire scene between cast and crew.
