Film Audio Recommendations
« on: January 16, 2019, 09:29:49 PM »
Hi, Im working on a few short films and i am in charge of doing audio, i was wondering of some recommendations for boom poles, counter weights, and shock mounts for a senheiser mkh 416, ive used a few and the ones i used still gave me some low end boom from finger movement on the boom

Can't recommend anything for the first two.

Have you tried a Rycote shockmount? It looks like this one was made for your application: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/880280-REG/Rycote_041118_INV_8_Microphone_Suspension.html

They're not cheap though.

Will you be shooting inside, or outside? If you are going outside it is all but impossible to run without a full Rycote or Sennheiser blimp and deadcat.

Reducing handling noise when booming is a skill that takes practice and good gear. It's almost a 50/50 relationship. Wear gloves, keep the cable tight and move the pole with deliberate and smooth action and you should be OK most of the time. If you are making wide swings indoors a foam cover helps eliminate "swoosh" sounds. Moving a mic through air creates the same pressure variances as moving air on a static mic.

Having a good headphone feed to hear what the mic is getting is crucial. You don't want too many surprises when you get to post.

A 416 doesn't have a low-cut filter, so engage the one on the recorder if it has one or do a cut at post.
