“5 Ways to Capture Dialogue in the Car”


Recommended Posts

I was just doing car to car driving through times square.  2 talent in back of a cab.  I used two CMC641 with GVC swivel and used magic arms to rig the mics to the back of drivers and passengers seats.  Ran the two mics into a SD MixPre and out to 2x SMQV at 250mw.  I've used 4098s, CUB mics, lavs and MKH50s in cars and by far the Schoeps with the GVC are my favorite.  It sounded fantastic considering the car was an old crown vic... not exactly without problems haha!

 

Proximity wasn't even that great (~2 ft away from talent) since I didn't have much headroom above and they were shooting 2.4 anamorphic so the whole back seat was in frame.

Static car a CUB-01 is amazing

 

Moving vehicle - a lav is the way to go

Cub can be great and can be terrible it is greatly aided when placed on a hard surface.

A Cub has to be placed on a surface (not hung in the air)

Great on roof, dashboard or window glass

I recorded a whole day of 5 people in a static van using jut two Cubs

Precisely Mike,

It works on any flat surface it just works better on hard flat surfaces.
