Documentary Filmmaking: Sound

Hey Everyone,

I am heading into the jungle to begin production on a documentary. We will be shooting on two reds and will often have multiple people in live action scenes. Don't need any tips when it comes to interview sound but for these live action scenes I am wondering if anyone has found themselves in similar situations and maybe learned a thing or two that could help us get the best sound possible. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I've never shot in the jungle, but I've heard of people using Sennheiser 416 or RODE NTG-3 shotgun mics in jungle environments because they are not sensitive to humidity. Same goes with recording audio with Sound Devices mixers and recorders because they are sealed against moisture. ( I would also make sure you've got at least one back-up recording system packed in a water-proof case, in case something really bad happens to your main audio gear )
