I've worked in post-production audio for just over 10 years, and I recently went freelance and somehow landed a gig producing a small interview shoot. The budget is tiny, so I'll be recording the sound. And while I have lots of post audio experience, I have zero location record experience.
Here's my plan for the shoot. Since all the interviewees will be seated in the same chair for each interview (filmed consecutively), I'm planning on putting the boom (Sen 416) on a mic stand with extension (no boom operator) and laving the interviewees as well. Because I'm very familiar with Pro Tools I'd like to record to hard drive using the preamps on my Mbox 2 Pro. In a perfect world, I'd like to grab word clock from the camera to time stamp the files. I'm not planning on running a back-up as if Pro Tools burps on a take, I can simply have the interviewee answer the question again. I'm specifically concerned about finding a camera with word clock out, and whether the whole plan is out to lunch or feasible.
