I am shooting a short series this summer and I have got a good camera, a good lighting set-up but I still am a bit unsure about audio. How are people supposed to get started in film-making when it comes to audio? I need this to be portable as I will be shooting in the local forest.
I currently use a Rode VideoMic directly plugged into my DSLR on a boom pole. This is the extent of my audio collection. For £100 - £130, could you please recommend the audio gear that is important when you are starting out. Also, how many lapel microphones would I need for film dialogue for two actors as wireless lapels cost quite a bit.
I don't just mean microphones, I mean the stuff to setup (field recorders etc) and the microphones.
