Boom Up Rig

Hey everyone,

I was wondering what methods you can do to create a rig where the camera is centered above a group of kids, and the camera begins to boom up and spin in a circle at the same time. 

I know a jib would help create the boom effect, but I'm having trouble imagining the tripod head attached and spinning around. I'm thinking I just do an extreme tilt on the ball head and loosen the pan and have it spin once we're about to shoot. I'm afraid, however, that the camera's battery might be in the way which may throw that idea out the window. 

Any thoughts or rigs that are decent in budget? The camera would be a RED Epic body with standard Zeiss Primes.
