It looks pretty good, and Stu has great charisma as a presenter. But you gotta get a better audio solution. It sounds like I'm listening to him through a walkie-talkie. Bad audio is the most glaring thing that will make people stop watching a video. A decent lav mic or even a Zoom H1 would make these kinds of videos 10x more watchable.

To take it up a notch visually, try to get him farther away from the wall if you have the space. Depth and diagonal lines look way better than the flat beige you've got him against.

For a simple engagement like this, I usually recommend a wired lapel with a small recorder in the speaker's pocket. Alternatively, you can use the Tascam DR-10L, which is a nice belt-pack recorder that comes with a lavalier mic. From my experience it's best not to rely on the house system. Wireless mics hiccup all the time, especially at your typical event venues, and you don't know how experienced the audio engineer is, or how clean of an output their board has.

Audio is 90% about getting the microphone as close to the source of the noise as possible.

One solution is to go the wireless LAV route, but that is expensive. This RODE kit is the best best value for the price.

Another option is to get a LAV that doubles as a recorder such as this Tascam Unit. You won't be able to monitor it so every shoot will be a gamble, but it's another solution.

Just curious, what is your budget? You are only looking for two mics? Have you ever thought about using summering like this. tascam lav I only say this because it would allow you great freedom in motion. They record locally, so you don't have any wireless headaches to worry about.

I'm a professional editor who just got into videography, so I can't really weigh in on the videography side as much as I can the post-production side, but I'll give my 2 cents.

I personally don't think you need to set aside $3000 for a computer. If you build your own, you can save a minimum of $500 (especially if it's USD). I have both a high-end desktop and a maxed out 2015 rMBP; I personally recommend building a desktop for two reasons.

  • Reason 1 is because it is incredibly cost effective. My desktop cost me $2600 after taxes 4 years ago (excluding monitor) and it is literally at a minimum 5x more powerful that my maxed out 2015 rMBP, which cost me around $3300CAD. The only time I use my rMBP is when I'm working a job on-site.

  • Reason 2 is longevity. I paid $2600CAD for my desktop 4 years ago, and I have literally ran into zero issues with it. It performs just as good as the day I put it together, and I see myself getting another solid 4 years out of it. If it starts to slow down for any reason, I made sure it was futureproof, so I can upgrade the components. The reason to get a Macbook is because of portability and you can get a good return on them. I say Macbook just because I trust it's build quality (I sold my 2012 a while ago which was working good) and you can sell it for a good price at any time.

    On the video side of things, I can't really be that helpful unfortunately. You can get cost-effective audio equipment if you buy the [Tascam DR-10L] ( I'm sure there are other good ones too. Tripods, monopods, sliders etc aren't too expensive in the grand scheme of things.

    I guess the point of my post really is that you don't need $3k on a computer for post-production. Build a PC, save money, and invest in your camera gear.

    EDIT: If it helps, I recently purchased an A7SII with a 24-70 and 70-200 GM Lenses. Those alone came up to ~10K CAD (significantly cheaper if you live in the US). All of that will come up to $7,394.00 if you buy off BH and you live in the US outside of NY or NJ because they don't charge tax there. This is definitely an expensive camera route, but this is what I wanted.

Gonna have to shoot you down on the H1, I've had it disconnect too many times.

A modern, more reliable option is the Locking lav, secondary safety track at -12db. If I could only own 1 lav, it would be this.

u/78523985210 - instead of keeping the $69 Videomic GO and buying two separate DR-10L recorders at $199.99 each, you might want to consider returning the Rode and replacing it with one $258.98 Zoom F1 SP with a removable shotgun capsule and a lavalier mic plus a separate, $149.99 lavalier-only Zoom F1 LP for your friend [Referrals].

Zoom F1-SP reviewed by Photo Savings here, product film here.

Zoom F1-SP and LP both shown in this B&H review.

If you can get your money back for the Videomic GO, this setup will give you more flexibility and cost you less than the Rode plus the two lav-only Tascams.

Hope this is helpful and good luck on your trip!

We're using these now for weddings and are pretty happy.

Make sure you don't get an older version because it lacked a hold function. Giant squid is a good cheaper lav if you go with something else.

The key for live event audio is redundancy. Make sure you always have at least 2 backups running.

For ceremony we put 2 lavs on the groom, 1 on the minister, and then an H1 on the podium. Sometimes we attach a lav to the mic on the podium if people are speaking.

For reception we take a line out from the DJ or band and set an H1 up on a stand on a speaker. Also get a small Sony recorder and a sleeve to put it directly on the mic. This can save you if anything goes wrong.

The key for live event audio is redundancy. Make sure you always have at least 2 backups running.

At the least I would get an H4N or similar tascam for a line out during reception and I would use the onboard mics on the podium during the ceremony. Then maybe I'd get a tascam for the priest since it records a backup track. Then maybe an H1 + lav for the groom to save money, then a Sony recorder + lav and a sleeve as a backup. Then your all set with backups for the reception too.

It's a great workhorse camera. If your clients aren't asking for 4k you won't be disappointed at all. I'd look at something like this instead of a cheapo amazon lav though.

Hey there, producer here
1st and foremost don't stress about screwing up. You already let him know you aren't 100% confident and he said he wants you to do it anyway, so you get a free learning pass.

2nd I would totally recommend running a couple Lav's for safety/clean. Depending on your budget I would look a couple wireless lavs like these Sennheisers and then use the NTG2 to boom overhead on a different channel. That will get you the cleanest audio and you'll have safety tracks. Or you could use these Tascam lav's for 1/3 the price. I love them, they record a 2nd safety track internally 12db lower (incase of peaking) and everything is internal, so you don't really have to constantly fiddle with levels and can just focus on getting good boom sound.

Side note, if you are running sound solo without a boom op, I recommend a setup like this for the H6. It keeps everything sooooooo much neater for you.

Brilliant idea actually!

I could see this as being a bit of a life saver.

If I were on a time constraint such as a public holiday, I would grab whatever decent directional mics I could find (in my case, I'd grab my SM-81s) and just hope to get them close enough to limit the amount of traffic noise.
I would imagine that the director is going to understand that background noise is going to be an issue, and probably even desirable to make the video look real.

If I had time, I'd get one of these for each of the instruments and attach them to the bridge somehow as a supplement for lining up with the stereo pair

But I do think the phone recording might be super helpful
