Audio setup for Commercial Shoot
I'm filming a :30 second video commercial.....indoors fairly controlled setting but 20-25 people mingling about. I'm wanting to use a Boom Mic to capture the audio. Any suggestions?

You want to use a boomed mic to record 20 people just mingling?

I don't want to use a boom mic to capture 20 people mingling. I'll have one or 2 people with some dialog that I want to capture with a boom mic but want to know if this is the way to go because I don't want to use wireless mics. If there is a different option that people are using to capture audio then I would like to hear about those options. If a boom mic is the way to go........which mic's are the ones companies are using to capture great audio?

Rode or Sennhieser are both good brands.

And what price range are you looking to spend for a mic? Generally, the more you spend, the better the mic.

Well, Ford is a good car. Mercedes is a good car.

I'm not so concerned about price right now. What are others using or have they used for a shot of this type. If its a Sennheiser or Rode or Shure what type have you used and did it capture the audio well. Rather than asking in a forum like this its probably easier to call a few company's and get some recommendations from them. Saves me typing and I get a selection to choose from. Easy Enough.

If you want to set audio setup and English subs as default, select languages-Audio and Subtitle different languages and set it as you want if available to then choose that audio language.

You can also go through the setting option and choose the one which you wants to have.


Thanks!
