Lavaliere in Windy Interview
on Aug 15, 2008 at 3:16:04 pm

I'm shooting an interview in a windy place this weekend and I've been meaning to purchase a rycote furry for my lavalier, but haven't-- alas I need a last minute fix.

I saw the moleskin suggestion here and I the furry fabric suggestion here. My questions are: does anyone know how to use the moleskin in this type of application? I'm a little unclear as how to use it with my lavaliere (Sennheiser ME2 Microphone). Pictures would be great if you have them. And, how well does the furry fabric work?

I have used a (thinned down) ball of cotton over the mic grill very effectively, in a pinch.

Also, put the mic under the talent's shirt.

Here is a link that will explain the use of moleskin.

scroll down and its in the "Hiding Lavs under clothing" & "wind noise" section.
Good Luck

This worked great! I used the tip (from Brian's link) about triangles of gaff tape combined with the moleskin to help cut out the clothing noise. I then threw on a patch of faux fur on top of outer piece of gaff tape. I actually ended up placing all of it outside the clothing since it was out of frame. Thanks!
