Its connected to a C stand. I am talking about the arm holding the light in place. I believe they unscrewed a light pole from a backlight stand and connected it to the clamp on the C stand. It has a red logo on the pole but I cant make out the brand. Anybody got a clue?

Could be, both Matthews and Manfrotto have red & black logo schemes.

It looks like a single section of a Manfrotto 3-piece boom clamped to the end of another boom or possibly the other 2 sections of that one.

It looks to me like that's just a knuckle to add another boom piece- like this:

Right. It is that knuckle that comes with the boom and the third section of the boom that has the baby stud mount on it. Don't make me set mine up for a pic.
