    First Film

    I am working on my first film. I have 1 scene with 23 people speaking at one time.....I am new to this. My thought was lav everyone and chase with a boom which puts me at 24 total....I have a 664 so I know I have 12 channels there but what's the best way to handle this? Do I need a second recorder 664 or 688 or scorpio? Or, should I get a sound devices 970 and record them all to something like that?
  2. I'm about to jump onto the DPA bandwagon. This going into my first wireless kit (only two at first), been renting before and used the 4061s. I'm debating with between buying the Slims and 60s. Which ones see more action or are better all arounders for mostly narrative work for you guys? And also if it's the 60s, the 60 or 61?
  3. Was wondering if anyone has had experience with wardrobe sewing mic positions and transmitter pack pockets into costumes? Like COS-11s into white tank top t's?
  4. What's the average percentage for your lavs that you don't get clothes rustle/noise, drop outs or hits, etc on your lavs? I'd say about 40-50% of the time I lav someone it's clean without any really bad rustle. Sometimes I have no issues at all when I get the placement just right with cotton shirts, other times I'd assume it's completely useless. I do narrative work where I have to hid the mics almost 90% if I can't hide it in plain sight.
  5. Hello All, I would like to know if it's possible to get cleaner audio from a lav receiver to a Zoom H4N/H6? Is it possible to plug a 1/4 plug from the lav to the Zoom instead of the XLR to get better audio? Thank you.
  6. Hi everyone, I have spent a bit of time searching the forum for an answer to this question, but I have not been able to find any related threads. If this topic has been covered, please direct me to the right page. Thanks. I am a bit new to production sound, but have been trying to refine my techniques and knowledge on as many topics as possible. I rarely seem to have trouble concealing lavs on talent, with the exception of wiring people in business suits. It seems that no matter where I hide the mic (in the tie, in the dress shirt, under the lappelle, in the collar), and with any
  7. Wanting to find out from all the JW folk out there what you all use as a case/pouch/ bag for wireless lab kits like moleskin, topstick, medical, tape, extra mics, scissors, foam, etc for a more portable option. I've seen may guys out there use a briefcase type of case to hold all of that. I've used for years a tackle pouch type that opens up from a fold and it has visible see through pockets to get what you need in a hurry. Mine is starting to break and I cannot find where I bought it. They may not make it anymore. I'm looking for something that is relatively small, foldable and takes little s
  8. Wanting to find out from all the JW folk out there what you all use as a case/pouch/ bag for wireless lab kits like moleskin, topstick, medical, tape, extra mics, scissors, foam, etc for a more portable option. I've seen many guys out there use a "briefcase" type of case to hold all of that and it's just not as convenient as I need. I've used for years a fishing tackle pouch type that opens up from a fold and it has visible see through pockets to get what you need in a hurry. Mine is starting to break and I cannot find where I bought it. They may not make it anymore. I'm looking for something
  9. Did anyone watch The Sound of Music Live on NBC last night/have any insight on how the sound was recorded? Definitely sounded like lavs, but I wonder about placement, how they dealt with costume changes, and playback. Watched the behind the scenes doc, but as usual there was not a single mention of the production sound crew. Just curious what folks thought over here. -Michael
  10. Hi Everyone-- I'm about to start a show where some of the talent will be wearing an ascot. Does anyone have any specifics about hiding a mic in an ascot? thanks
  11. So I'm shooting right now. And the Sennhesier G3 wireless is being strange. I'm using a SD 552 and have three lavs plug into to their inputs respectively. The signal seems to be going in and out, when I check them my voice varies in volume and the signal gets slightly louder then softer. Again they are g3 lavs and have OST mics on them. I've changed the frequencies to no avail, there is an ac on cause we haven't started shooting yet, but I don't think that would be effecting the signal level would it? The boom is ok though..any thoughts?
  12. Hi All, In a couple of weeks, I'll be recording sound for an unusual event: 10 row-boats will set out from a pier, each carrying one storyteller and 5 listeners (full occupancy). The boats will drop anchor 'within sight' of the pier, and will be 'not too close' to each other (that's as precise as the distance info gets unfortunately). Once in position the storytellers will begin to tell their stories concurrently which will last about 30 minutes. My job is to record 5 of the storytelers. There will be a run through in the afternoon before the performance in the evening. If r
  13. Hi everybody, I recently both a used lectrosonics um200b tx / ucr211 rx system (the first lectro I own) and finally I can buy the lav I want for it, a Sanken cos-11. There seems to be many different versions of the cos-11 and I'm not sure what's the best option for my wireless (at least all the diferent names listed in BH got me confused); I'll be using it for fiction and documentary work, mostly as a personal mic. Should I choose attenueted over not attenuated mic? What else should I consider? Thanks for your help. All the best, Andrés MD.
  14. Short version (if you don't have time to read the whole thing): I've been looking at the threads on lavs, and one thing I don't see discussed is which lavs are well-suited to mount to talents as fast as possible, with as little consequence as possible? (eg. as little trial and error as possible before I can get rid of muffled audio, clothing rustle, etc.). I will need to look at the following: - Accessories that will work wonders with the mic in question (eg. COS-11 Vampire clip). - Flat vs. other versions? - Cable noise? My budget is unlimited (since the most expensive lavs I kno
  15. 1-Finishing up a low-balled sound gig on a TV pilot where lots of thought and money went into nearly everything within the well-written and well-acted script by an accomplished and talented director except what equipment was necessary to get good sound. When the UPM wouldn't budge on price, I gave him a kit list of what I would bring for that price...2 channel recording, no TC, a boom and 2 G3 wireless kits, no camera hops, and when asked for options, I include the search for someone with a bigger kit who would work for what they're offering. I discuss the script with the UPM, explain the inh
