I'll be soon recording a dialogue between 3 persons w/ NO budget so we only have one NTG2. I watched a recording in these conditions with the same actors and it was horrible. I understand it is very difficult to record the 3 voices properly, being an animated and long conversation. What should be the approach? That time the operator had a hard time trying to place the mic above each actor while they were speaking but it was impossible to track them at time and with many overlapped lines... awful. I spent weeks in post to make it less terrible.
We will have at least one rehearsal. What advises can you have for me?
Thank you very much.
