I will be shooting (producing) a super low budget short for 4 days out in the country. There is no dialogue. One scene features a struggle that ends in someone getting stabbed.
My former colleagues in Production tell me to save money by doing the sound in post, using Foley. I was thinking of hiring a sound person for one day - the day the struggle is filmed - during which he or she could also get natural sound for us.
Every penny counts on this, most people are working for free, myself included, and I would have to put the sound mixer up and feed them, hence my worry about blowing the money.
Honest opinions wanted.
