Jesper Magnusson Posted September 16, 2013 Report Share Posted September 16, 2013 I just finished working on a short film where I had to rely on lavs much more than I have previously (many wide shots and noisy locations). I've always based the positioning of lavs on the individuals clothing, body build and movements, trying to find a place that was free of clothing and cable noise, without having it sound awful (usually when they turn away their head or it's too close to the throat). As such, the tonal differences between actors could be quite big (sometimes unavoidable because of what they wear), but it's never been much of an issue as they only served as a backup to the boom. For this project then, I started to think more about consistency of tone when it came to the lavs, and I was wondering in what degree others let that affect their choices? Do you try to get the same tone between actors (which often means similar positioning and possibly the same model of lav), or do you trust that it will be fine with some EQ in post?
