Jeff Wexler Posted September 8, 2013 Report Share Posted September 8, 2013 I am posting this from Simon Hayes' facebook post Les Miserables, Hugh Jackman singing "Who am I?" on the peak of a mountain in the French Alps. Arthur Fenn booming, spot on position - could not be more 'On Mic'. Boom on a cable to preserve 100% quality. For anyone wondering why the pole is so long, Hugh started singing 20 feet from the camera and ends up in close up. It took us an hour to carry the sound cart up the mountain rather than go handheld so we could use the Super CMIT boom mic and Lectro's with Venue receivers, again so we didn't compromise on sound quality. This was the first day of shooting on the film and during this shot it became clear we were recording something special. - Simon Hayes Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
