    The whole point of the MiCon connection is that it is detachable, and allows for quick swapping of connector types. If you epoxy it in place, it’s ruined.

    Lav cables are thin. That’s kind of their thing. Bulky cables are harder to dress, especially when running through/underneath wardrobe.

    And yes, they can be delicate. The last thing ever to do to...

    Incorrect.

    If you don’t use a mid-side single-point with internal matrix, you do get separate mid (cardioid) and side (Fig8) signals. However, to reap the stereo width of the sides, you have to...

    Phantom power should be OFF. The ew100 receiver does not require phantom power to operate, and the voltage can cause signal issues and potentially even damage the receiver.

    I’ve also found the...

    Not the first time this kind of setup has been mentioned around here. I wouldn’t recommend it. That stereo “ambient” track won’t make the mix in post because it won’t do anything helpful to the...

    Absolutely this, a technique that’s been around (and very effective) for a very long time.

    It’s easy to see the master shot only, and to start to worry about how you’re going to cover audio....

    But... HOW?! You don’t speak Vietnamese. How would you know on which Vietnamese words to make your cuts? Because he probably won’t stick to the script verbatim, and chances are that you’re going to...

    When you say “controlled setting”, how controlled? Proper VO booth?

    If you’re in an actual voice studio or isolation booth, then the TLM series are pretty widely regarded in the VO world. On the...

    Yes. The model is WAY too close to the green screen. There shouldn’t be a thick shadow surrounding her like that.

    Move the model forward and light her separately from the screen. You want to avoid...

    I have the same question.

    I’ve worked with all sorts of jibs over the years, from high-end to cheap-o. The one thing that the cheap-o versions most often have in common, and the reason they have...

    Get an RF Explorer. About $180 on Amazon.

    I find that the built-in freq scans on most wireless receivers, whether on the level of Sennheiser or on the level of Lectro, leave a lot to be desired....

    Dan, that sounds a lot like the warehouse where we shoot “Master Distiller”. We don’t have any 2.4GHz wireless for audio, but cell service dropped to nearly nothing inside. UHF systems held up just...

    This has much less to do with the mic and a lot more to do with the recording environment.

    Recording for VO, and doing it well, means eliminating ALL reflections from the room. Professional VO is...

    Ah. Missed that, but I just scrubbed back through the thread and found it.

    So, Ryan... do you, or the producer, speak Vietnamese?

    Are you able to speak or understand that language?

    So you aren’t the director. You’re basically acting as the DP.

    But I’m confused... are there two producers? The one who hired you and the one who is struggling with English?
