  1. Hi everyone, I was wondering if you guys had experience with InEar monitoring for actors! Specifically I would like to shoot a music scene with live singing and I would like to equip the singing actors with inear monitoring so they can sing to the playback. I had good results once, using one of the comtek receivers on an actress using regular earbuds in only one of her ears. The makeup artist helped me covering both earbud and cable with the actrisses hair. This time I have a car scene with father and son singing to the radio. The camera will be shooting only from one angle so I would equip each actor with monitoring on their nonvisible ear. Has anyone tried wireless monitoring solutions here? I mean would it be possible to get rid of the headphone cables somehow? AFAIK live musicians use wireless monitoring with earbuds personally fitted to their ears, this would be quite costly on a film set. I wonder if there are solutions with unifit (for any person)? Would be interesting to know what problems you encountered. In another scene of the same film, actors are singing to the radio in a living room. Here it will be very difficult to hide earbuds as they move around; its a longshot though, so I might try using the same technique. Another option would be to use a playback with a lowpass filter somewhere around the mid-frequencies, so that the actors can sing along to the playback while capturing more or less decent production sound. From a re-recording mixers standpoint Id say this method might work, but Im curious to learn about your experiences! All the best, Hapaty
