My budget isn't large and I'm looking to get together a little on location sound get together quickly for a possible job that is coming up. Now, as usual with me, I jump before I can even walk, so I may of landed myself with a small on location sound job, before even having proper kit. It's for a local documentary media company that seems to deal mostly with interviews and mini multimedia pieces surrounding different locations (mostly inside locations it seems from their promo videos). Doesn't look like anything too taxing (I hope).
Now, I know this stuff is expensive. I'm presuming I need the option to have a portable mixer to go into a camera as well as a digital recorder to record seperately. I'm presuming I need a shotgun mic of some sort which has minimal handling noise and definitely wind protection. But I don't have much money here and am looking for practical solutions that are a combination of decent enough quality, portability and value.
At present I own the Zoom H2 (for recording ambiances and stereo sound effects and used for my sound design), I have a Mac laptop, Apogee Duet with a AKG C414 and Shure SM58 microphone... this is for my music and sound design... I'm presuming none of this will be usual on a set.
Any help, advice, information, experiece at all to help me get together some kit... Or especially advice on something that can mix, record (or both?) into a camera (or not) would be great!
