Mic Interference at the Ceremony
on Jun 8, 2011 at 6:08:58 pm

We film multiple weddings each weekend. We send several crews out.

Can I hear what people use to mic the ceremony? What mics, what techniques, how you choose the frequencies you work in?

We use Lectrosonic wireless mics. We've always put a lav on the groom and on the officiant. Between those two mics and the camera stick mics, that's always done the trick.

Nowadays we have more situations where the mics get interference, and I just wondered if others have experienced interference issues and how you deal with it.

If you ask an audio expert how to be sure your mic will be operating in a clear frequency, they'll tell you the only way to be sure is to arrive at the location early and analyze for a clear frequency then set your mics to those frequencies. It’s pretty impractical for doing weddings especially if our shoot begins where the bride and groom are getting ready and you hit the ground running when you get to the ceremony.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. tx
