That led to an All day , video shoot , of a guy that has a pretty incredible story .
I did sound , but had the good sense to bring a camera “Just in case ” so there ended up being a fair amount of B-Roll to add to the existing ( and pretty dam nice) camera setup already there .
My gear on set was my trusty Roland R44 , Rodes NTG-2 and Cloudlifter CL-1 , in the first chain , on the main actor.
Then for a side /ambient mic I used my Audix 1255 hc Ultra mini condenser clamped to a wall .
My High Stand with a Boom arm put the NTG2 right on the Main source and let me get out of the way so the Camera guy could move freely( very tight space) .
All in all considering the shooting environment and noise issues , This shoot came off pretty good .
I really enjoyed working with the crew that did this , very cool people . I cannot share the Actor in question as I do not have permission . But I think I can share this .
Yesterday was a good day.
