A case study – The Herald Theater
Digital Mix was contacted by Auckland Live to provide a single camera recording for a stage show at The Herald Theater.
This show was a little different to the norm in that the actress was not mic’d and moved across stage at various stages during the performance. Video clips played an integral part of the show being projected onto a screen at the back of stage. Additional audio in the form of video clip audio tracks and hand held microphones used for audience participation, these signals were fed through the in-house sound system. In all 4 separate audio channels had to be recorded.
- Performers audio on stage
- Radio mics and audio from video clips
- Room / ambient audio.
Digital Mix provided a single high definition video camera and operator. To cater for the audio challenges, a dual channel stand alone audio recorder was placed front and center of the stage. A directional shotgun microphone was also used as well as a separate audio feed from the in-house public address PA system. In all 4 separate audio tracks were recorded.
In the post production phase, the video and audio files were edited on an AVID Media Composer edit system, combining the recorded video and audio and included various graphics, video clips and other elements to create a master video file.
Another event under the belt and a happy customer above all.
