Been following this site for a while, but first time I'm posting - great initiative & resource!
I am looking into ways of recording an ice hockey session - basically not a real ice hockey game, but where a handful of ice skaters will perform moves, that kind of thing. I'd like to capture as much different sounds as I can - skating, impacts of players / impacts into the walls, the puck hitting the net.
I don't have any experience actually with this kind of recording session. One idea is that it'd be nice to try and attach lav mics to player's skates, and perhaps taping a small recorder on their body as well - as long as we can ask them to do specific moves, otherwise either they break a leg or we break equipment...
I've been reading about body packs (wireless transmitters/receivers) but it seems that quality-wise these things are not too hot... but probably safest solution for attaching a recording device to a sportsman?
Shotgun mics to point towards the action seems like another obvious idea, but I'm wondering about indoor use of shotgun mics, I know this can create some strange artifacts.
Well - I just wanted to throw this out here and see if anybody has experience with something similar to this, and might perhaps have some tips.
