Hey you guys!
Can´t describe how I love this website! What an awesome idea!
My question is: I´ve been on set operating shotgun microphones before but, because of budget limitations and the fact it has always been independent productions, I´ve always used the mic directly plugged into the camera. Now I´m about to go to set again and, this time, I will use a portable audio recorder. It seems pretty simple at first but I´d really like to hear some advices on what, refering to the operation of the equipment, should I be aware of this first time. I will get it and practice a little before the recording begins but, still, there are some tips only experience teaches us.
Would you guys be so kind to give me some advices on this lovely machine?
Thank you so much!
