Recording in the presence of generators?
Nima posted a topic in General DiscussionHey folks, In short (if you don't have time) What do you do when you have to record dialogue with a generator running in the background? Background story (if you have time) I had a shoot today and we had loud generator that we couldn't place too far away from where the action was happening (about 40-50 meters at most). This was due to budget restrictions on power cables. I hated it, and it totally interfered with getting a clean forest sound under the dialogue. We turned the jenny so that the noisy exhaust/engine or whatever it is was facing away from the shoot, and we put a semi-sound-blanket on top to tunnel the sound further away from us. I also had the actors talking, mostly, in the direction of the jenny so that the mic could face away from it. But I could still hear a significant generator underneath everything. What would you have done? I used a KMR 81.
