Beginner, sketches, audio, hotshoe
Hello! I'm a 16year old beginner with no education in film what so ever and I have had a big problem for a while now. I've wanted to film a couple of sketches I've written myself. The style I'm heading for is sort of like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSDTmJtE-Bc
My problem is that I don't know how to record the audio. I want to make funny sketches with a lot of dialogue.
I have a Sony alpha a3000 camera and the problem is that I can't get a mic such as the rode videomic pro since my camera does not have a micjack. The Sony alpha a3000 seems to only have a multi interface hot shoe that kind of looks like an electronic version of a regular shoe, google "multi interface hot shoe" and you'll know what I mean. My question is if I have to record sound separately or if there's is an better solution and if there's a mic that connects via the multi interface hot shoe only. Or if you can give me any tips on how you would record these type of sketches. When I goggled how to record audio seperatly it seemed to cost a lot of money, keep in mind I'm young and don't have that big of a budget.
