Miking a boxer

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

I wonder if anyone has any experience or advice on putting a wireless lav (DPA4060) on a boxer during training for a documentary. I'd prefer to hide it if possible. I won't know what he's wearing until the day of the shoot. I have most hiding devices in my kit.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Perhaps you're lucky and he will be wearing protective headgear ...

Lav in the headgear?

Boxers get hit on the head.

I do lots of boxing. The typical MO for me is to never wire the boxer during training except on runs. I'll mic the trainer/s especially during mitts and sometimes a plant mic in the corner if there is sound there I want to capture.  Good Luck.
