Hi Craig,

Your comments most appreciated.
Good idea with the setting up of kids in chairs/desks not facing the windows. Good point, also, about making sure ahead of time kids are where I want them to be to avoid moving them...and the bit of allowing 15 minutes of pre-shooting to allow everyone to get comfortable.

Sound: I was thinking of giving the teacher a wireless lav, and then either using a shotgun mounted on the camera or a boom (if I can get an operator) to move in for the kids to go into the second channel. I always prefer tripod when I can, but with the kids, I'm thinking if I get in close with wide angles, I'll avoid camera shake, and also if I'm using a cam-mounted shotgun, I'll get okay sound? That was my strategy I had in mind. I like getting very close in for the kids, and my cam's better at wide angles than zooming.

What're your thoughts, and appreciate your comments.

Out of curiosity, what types of classroom shoots have you done?

Dan S.
