How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

Recommended Posts

It should be possible to rent a TRAM for the shoot or even buy a used one as they are not expensive.

Remember we are trying to protect your reputation and your future.

I guess you are you recording a drama and not a "videography" style shoot.

I have used Sennheiser lavs when I bought into their expensive radio mikes

and used them for feature films stuck on the inside edge of a hem for example,

but it's not guaranteed to get the best result!

Maybe show the director some of our posts and always "argue" on the basis

that you are trying to do your best for the production.

Good luck

Thanks for the guidance, Mike. I’m hoping to demonstrate to the director how his mic is not suitable at our upcoming meeting, and ask him about if he has budget/time for ADR. If that doesn’t convince him to rent a lav, I’ll tell him that I will need more coverage for the boom, and that I’ll opt not to roll the lav track when problematic. And if he still wants me rolling the lav all the time, then I might just show up to set with a rented COS-11.

 

I wholeheartedly agree with protecting my reputation, but at the same time, I don’t want to make it seem easy to get a lav out of me without some consideration and/or compensation beforehand.
