Sound recording for series of videos aimed at youth groups across Chester.
With only a few hours notice, I lacked the opportunity to source much equipment for this shoot. For audio capture there were two main options, either a lav mic on the talent or a boom mic (and therefore boom op). I knew that I would be unable to source a wireless lav at such short notice and my wired lavs would be unsuitable, so I started thinking down the options for a boom. After rooting through some cupboards I was able to gather an old Sennheiser K3-U ME80, and the boom arm off a broken microphone stand, these would have to do.
