Sound advice for documentary production?
on Dec 9, 2010 at 9:36:57 am

Hi, I am in the process of obtaining equipment sound etc. to produce a documentary, currently I have the following equipment:

Canon HV30 with shotgun hotshoe canon mic
Canon HV40
Merlin Steadicam
Velbon D600 Tripod

Lighting:
Sachtler Reporter 300H

The documentary will be shot both inside and outside thus recommendations for outside mics and internal mics would be useful. My previous experience for internal work has been to use wireless Sennheiser G2 mic kits and externally to use a boom mic.

Any advice would be most helpful.

Thanks

N. Rekoba

If you do a search, you'll find dozens upon dozens of threads about the topic.

First things first: what is your budget?

And besides a budget are you doing sit-down interviews, ENG style run 'n' gun, "reality" style, high risk "embedded"? Are you on the ocean, in the desert, in the city? And do you have a sound man or are you on your own?

What, where and how you are shooting will also dictate your equipment choices.

Peace,

Bob
