That would be a very off-putting conversation to have with a director. To have all of my equipment decisions (based on actual use and careful discrimination) immediately up-ended by someone who read about a mic somewhere online....

Would throw up so many red flags!
Don't know if they'd be easy to work with.... :-o Could be a difficult time on set trying to do your job with them interfering.

It would be fun to do sync dialog with lip mics. 


Well, not "fun" exactly, since the actors would be holding the mics. You'd certainly get a tight sound.


The fun would be when the various picture departments start saying "we can't get a good close-up because of sound!" 


Turnabout and all that...   ; )

On today's shoot the DoP (somewhat jokingly) complained about my plant mic being in shot (after I'd just checked before that shot with him that it wasn't!), my response: 
"It was your camera that put my mic in shot not me!" :-P

Ah if only it was always that way round.....  camera's fault for having the mic in shot, not our fault for having it there!

Despite this odd interview I really enjoyed the movie! On top of directing, one of the bros also played a lead role in the film. I'm curious if it was a OMB doing sound on set - don't think I saw a boom op credit in there
