I'm recording a video while also having an actor mic'd up. The person goes in hidden and the microphone needs not to be obvious.
I connected a microphone to a cell phone, and recorded. It picked up the voice of the actor perfectly but not any of the people speaking to him from 5-10 feet away.
From my current research it seems I need an Omnidirectional microphone.
Can someone advise me if this is the right thing i need. Also can someone recommend me a specific model or where to get them.
How good will the quality be?
Thanks a lot
P.S. Heres an exmaple of what I would be doing
notice how you can hear the second guy very well. I need that
