|Standard EFP audio
Whilst the audio some EFP
assignments may be handled by the camera operator with minimal
equipment, we usually strive to operate with a dedicated sound
recordist. Just like the photography, the quality of the audio
in post-production and the finished result is only ever as good
as the original recording from the location.
Most location audio is recorded
directly to the video media, though for some assignments a
separate audio recorder will be used for sync in post.
Our standard audio package is based
on an SQN 4 mixer with a selection of wireless and wired
lavalier microphones, supported with relevant hand or boom
microphones. The BeyerDynamic DT-48 is our standard recordist's
headset, though alternatives are available.
As alternative EFP mixers we have
the SQN 3-M, the Opus Audio FPM420 and the Sony MXP-42.
