I am going to be shooting a single person seminar tomorrow with two cameras an was wondering how some of you handle Q&A sessions. The presenter will have a presentation and after will ask for questions from the audience. I have read that people will hand around a hand held microphone or they will set-up a microphone on a stand and have people approach the mic and ask questions. Are there any other ideas that have worked for other people? I believe that the hospital that I am shooting the video at has a hand held microphone but I am not sure I can get access to an output to record.
I asked the person in charge of the seminar and they where not sure if the room had a mixer to get a feed from and they only have one hand-held wireless microphone.
I plan on putting a wireless on the presenter and will decide whether we pass around the wireless microphone that I have that will go directly into the camera and not over the PA or just put a microphone on a stand. The people will probably be tapping the hand-held that I give them because they will not hear it over the PA system.
