I personally like to control the interview with a stick mic and I don't think the process of putting on lavs for these quick shot interviews is worth the trouble. The audio seems perfect to me, I'm not sure these are unpolished or rough at all, but I understand that to each his own. Thanks for the comments!lifeat24fps said:May I step into my background in video production for a moment to suggest procuring a couple of lavalier mics and a Zoom H4N? It will make these interviews go much smoother and allow for a more polished finished product to be uploaded.
Yep, first time I met Yoshida, but I loved talking to him. We'll meet again soon, I hope!lifeat24fps said:Honestly I think Sony should have had that stuff set up for you guys already so you could just put on your mic, plug in your gear and go. Maybe it *was* like that considering all the videos are framed the same.
I have specific situations where I will choose a stick over a lav, and being outside is definitely one of those situations because accursed wind will always come at the most important part of the interview in an attempt to ruin the audio.
I intentionally used the word "more" in the first comment because the interview looks and sound great. There was just one moment that made my inner journalist squirm. It's probably precisely because you seem to have had much less time with Yoshida than other outlets.
