Last Wednesday I met with Roy Welter at Audioquip. They will be providing the sound equipment for the shoot.
Roy showed me the various kinds of mics they have available, including Sennheiser, Schoeps and Countryman. He wanted to know whether audio would be going to the camera because there are usually only two channels of audio into the camera and sometimes the sound person wants to capture other tracks of sound separately for use later in the sound mix. He said that the sound guy also may want to have backup sound in case anything goes wrong with the primary audio.
Thanks to Roy and everyone at Audioquip for helping me on my film!
