Should I sell my boom mics and by lavs instead?
on Nov 2, 2018 at 10:38:18 pm

Basically I have two boom mikes, the AT4053b, the Rode NTG-3, and a boompole.

However, I find that they are troublesome to use on a shoot, cause I cannot find anyone who is that good at booming. I usually have to be behind the camera so I thought maybe in order to operate with less crew, I should just sell the boom pole and two mics and use the money to buy at least four or more lavs instead. That would hopefully be enough for scenes with multiple actors.

However, are lavs good for recording foley and sound effects as well? If I sell the booms, I would them use the lavs for recording foley and sound effects, instead. Or should I be using different mics for recording foley and sound effects? But if I use the same mics, then I have a better chance of making the foley and sound effects, sound like it's in the same place as the dialogue, cause the mic is the same. Not that it's an exact match of course room, wise, but it does help.

But would recording foley and sound effects work with lavs though? What do you think?
