Lav VS. Shotgun
I'm about to shoot a short film with many different elements in different scenes (running, fighting, sitting and dialogue, etc).
I was wondering what audio solution might be best for what situation. So when do I use a lavalier microphone and when do I use a shotgun mic on a boompole?
Do you have a general rule for that (is there one by the industry?) or do you estimate the situation first and then decide wether it's worth/it makes sense to use rather a lavalier or rather a shotgun?
