I am using two Mini DV video cameras (one for a side shot and one for a centered long shot) to tape a single singer doing a show this Saturday night.
The singer is using pre-recorded music tracks and playing electric guitar at times during the show. I have three 500 watt softboxes available if needed.
My theory for getting the best sound for this shoot is this, although Iím not sure it's the best.
I have one M-Audio Mictrotrack digital recorder (using a removable CF card) taking the left and right outs of the main mixing board. This will capture the vocals/guitar/music tracks very clearly as I've done this already. But, there is no audience sounds.
So, I'm planning on using another Microtrack with two condenser mics plugged into it and placing them in front of the stage facing (the audience/stage?) to pick up not only the audience sounds but the singers sounds after they have been released into the room and now have some "live" sound feel.
I'm planning to use a "clapboard" before the show so I can sync up the audio with video later and then also mix the two audio recordings together for a "clear" but live sound.
I'm hoping this will work but wanted any help I could get here.
